Next Generation Audio
Providing interactive, immersive sound for TV, streaming and VR applications
Immersive and personalized audio
Hear your home team™: The MPEG-H Audio system delivers enveloping immersive sound and allows consumers to choose between different audio presets or to adjust the dialogue volume.
Regardless of the device, the MPEG-H Audio system delivers the best sound experience possible - in the home theatre as well as on smartphones, tablets and Virtual Reality devices.
A single technology for all applications
The MPEG-H Audio system is designed to work in streaming systems as well as in existing and future broadcast systems from contribution to emission.
Next-generation open audio standard
Fair pricing and an extensive community of open standards developers ensures easy and transparent access and a quick development of a whole ecosystem of devices for professionals as well as for consumers.
Ease of use
The MPEG-H Audio system is designed to work with today's streaming and broadcast equipment. The immersive sound features can be played back over any loudspeaker configuration or over headphones.
Personalization and audio description offer improved accessibility
With its unique personalization features, the MPEG-H Audio system offers fully user-adjustable dialogue level and customizable audio description, allowing the media consumption experience to be tailored to individual preferences and needs.
Fraunhofer IIS is also committed to making it easier for broadcasters to offer personalization features and to comply with accessibility regulations. Our dialog separation algorithm also enables dialog level adjustment for conventional film material, where the single audio components are non-existent. Automatic audio mixing may be an important step towards making audio descriptions affordable, even for low budget productions, and is a big time-saver for short-term productions. At the same time, the advanced MPEG-H Audio metadata gives broadcasters the possibility to carefully control each feature they offer to their viewers.
