    Erlangen/Magdeburg, Germany: At the final review of the Celtic-Plus project “ReICOvAir – Reliable Industrial Communication Over the Air” the project team, led by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, presented a new test system for industrial wireless communication. The developed test system consists of a software-based and a hardware-based test bed solution. Both test beds are proof-of-concept solutions for testing the performance of wireless transmission systems, e.g., in terms of measuring and evaluating reliability, latency and throughput.

    Nuremberg/Munich – Germany: On a typical pass in ice hockey, the puck hurtles across the ice at high speeds. Retrospective analyses provide more clarity. For the first time, the American Ice Hockey League NHL can now display various match analyses in real time. A 20-strong research team from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS makes every movement in the game measurable – up to 2,000 times a second. Thomas von der Grün, Norbert Franke from Fraunhofer IIS and Thomas Pellkofer from jogmo world corp. will be receiving the Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize for their work. It will be the seventh time in a row that Fraunhofer IIS will receive this prize.

  • Fraunhofer IIS announced today at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas that they are working with Blackmagic Design to include MPEG-H editing and authoring tools in the Fairlight audio subsystem of this popular content creation application. NAB visitors will be able to hear a preview of the technology at the Fraunhofer (SU4816) and Blackmagic Design (SL216) booths, where it will be shown in DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio, using the Fairlight 5-bay audio console. MPEG-H mixing and panning, as well as basic metadata authoring, is already supported in this preview, allowing creation of immersive MPEG-H programming using the MPEG-H control track format.
