Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS
The institute’s Audio & Multimedia divison has been researching audio coding techniques and multimedia technology for more than 25 years, and is widely known for its significant role in the development of the mp3 and MPEG AAC standards. More than 1,000 companies have taken out licenses for Fraunhofer’s audio codec software, which is installed on over eight billion devices worldwide. Other, more recent products include Fraunhofer Cingo®, which enables mobile devices to deliver virtual surround sound, Fraunhofer Symphoria® for 3D in-car audio, AAC-ELD for full HD quality phone calls, and Dialogue Enhancement, which allows TV viewers to adjust the sound mix to their personal requirements.
