  • Fraunhofer Digital Cinema Alliance Introduces the Inte-gration of IMF in its New easyDCP 3.0 Version at IBC 2014

    Amsterdam, September 12, 2014: IBC stand 8.B80 – The Fraunhofer Digital Cinema Alliance, leading provider of future-oriented solutions for an enhanced digital media and digital cinema workflow, is presenting easyDCP 3.0 at IBC 2014. Developed by Fraunhofer IIS, in addition to improved user guidance with enhanced drag & drop, this new version includes support for the Interoperable Master Format (IMF) format and significant advances in creating and checking subtitles.

  • Fraunhofer Digital Cinema Alliance Presents New Plug-In for the Post-Production of Light-Field Data for Avid Media Composer

    Amsterdam, Netherlands, September 12, 2014: IBC stand 8.B80 – The Fraunhofer Digital Cinema Alliance, leading provider of future-oriented solutions for an enhanced digital media and digital cinema workflow, is presenting a new light-field software plug-in for Avid Media Composer®, developed by Fraunhofer IIS, at IBC 2014. On-location retakes are time-consuming and expensive. What if the focus was incorrectly set during shooting or the perspective has to be changed? The use of intelligent algorithms and multi-camera systems that provide multiple simultaneous views opens the door to a world of new post-production possibilities. The new software plug-in allows integration of this functionality into an existing post-production software. Creative work with light-field data can be experienced by using an intuitive user-interface to process this data. The plug-in is one of the new developments that Fraunhofer IIS is presenting at IBC for movie and video production in hall 8, stand B80.

  • Fraunhofer IIS Demonstrates Real-Time MPEG-H Audio Encoder System for Broadcast Applications at IBC

    Amsterdam, September 10, 2014: At IBC 2014 Fraunhofer IIS is showcasing the next milestone in interactive 3D sound transmission for broadcasters. This new TV audio system is based on the MPEG-H Audio standard, and will allow TV broadcasters to offer live broadcasts with object-based 3D audio across all devices, providing viewers the ability to tailor the audio to suit their personal listening preferences.

  • International Experts Meet at Renowned Audio Conference in Erlangen

    Erlangen, Germany, August 28, 2014: The International Audio Laboratories Erlangen, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS and Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg invite audio enthusiasts from around the globe to attend the renowned “Digital Audio Effects” (DAFx) conference, a first-class forum for experts in digital audio processing. The conference will be held in Erlangen, Germany from September 1–5, 2014 and will provide comprehensive insights into theory and practice in the field.

  • A visionary world premier: Fraunhofer IIS presents world's first emotion detection app on Google Glass

    Erlangen, Germany, August 27, 2014: The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has adapted its SHORE™ real-time face detection and analysis software to work with Google Glass, the first app of its kind. With the aid of Glass’ integrated camera, the app detects people’s faces and determines their emotions by analyzing their facial expressions. The so-called Glassware (Google Glass app) simultaneously gauges the person's age or detects their gender among other things, but it cannot determine their identity. All calculations are performed in real-time by the CPU integrated in the eyewear. The image data never leaves the device.

  • Fraunhofer IIS develops integrated, low-cost color sensor for controlling LED lighting

    Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen, Germany have developed a color sensor with an integrated on-chip filter for controlling color and brightness fluctuations that can occur with LEDs. Nano-structured metal layers for spectral filtering, combined with an underlying layer of photodiodes, can be utilized in a feedback loop to control colors, thus ena-bling defined color perception. The low-cost CMOS (complementary metal ox-ide semiconductor) process used to manufacture the color and multispectral sensors promises broad utility. Researchers will be presenting a prototype at the SENSOR + TEST trade fair in Nürnberg from June 3 to 5, 2014 (hall 12, exhib-it booth 12-537).

  • Deepening and extending strategic cooperation between Bilkent University and Fraunhofer IIS

    Professors from Bilkent University and scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS are co-hosting a symposium on a wide range of current research topics in the fields of communications technology, image processing and medical engineering. The aim of the Bilkent-Fraunhofer IIS symposium is to further develop the collaborative relationship that has already existed for several years and to work together in common fields of research through bilateral or EU projects.

  • Fraunhofer IIS launches “GOOSE” with the aim of developing a GNSS receiver with an open software interface

    Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is participating in the “GOOSE” project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The aim is to develop the first GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) receiver with an open software interface. The project is headed up by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) with the involvement of navigation technology specialist navXperience GmbH, German manufacturer of GNSS technology, and the University of the German Federal Armed Forces in Munich (UniBW).

  • The Students from Slovak University of Technology Bratislava win EMEA Freescale Cup Challenge 2014
