Content Production

In the digital age, filmmaking or producing broadcasting content creates several terabytes of data. In order to transfer and record the increasing bit rate, Fraunhofer IIS conducts research and development for scalable data compression and systems for storing HD and DC resolution.


JPEG XS - New Mezzanine Image Codec

JPEG XS stands for extra speed and extra small. Take a closer look at JPEG XS - the new low complexity codec standard for professional video production.



With Realception® the Moving Picture Technologies department achieved a plug-in suite for professional movie post-production, which was developed especially for Foundry´s Nuke.



With the software tool easyDCP Creator Fraunhofer IIS offers an easy-to-handle solution for the creation of standard compliant DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages).

Besides, the integration of easyDCP in 3rd party post-production software is possible via API.


MPEG-H Authoring Suite

The MPEG-H Authoring Suite (MAS) works with all popular DAWs and facilitates the workflow of MPEG-H Audio content production. It is available free of charge for professional users in TV broadcasting.

Interoperable Master Format IMF

We also offer an enhancement for the IMF in the well-known environment of our easyDCP postproduction software, which means the capability to create, playback and encrypt in this data format.
