    The MIOTY wireless transmission technology created by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is one of the first standardized communication solutions for LPWAN (Low power wide area network) applications in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). MIOTY exploits a special technology known as telegram splitting to enable energy-efficient, robust and reliable transmission of sensor data over distances of up to several kilometers. A standard released by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) in June sets out uniform technical specifications for the development of new applications in the field of massive IIoT solutions, which the MIOTY wireless communication architecture is compliant with.

  • The post-production software easyDCP has secured its place on the market for creation, playback, and qual-ity control of digital cinema packages DCPs and Interoperable Master Pack-ages (IMPs) for ten years now. Its rich functionality is not only available through the easyDCP standalone software, but is also integrated into a num-ber of cutting-edge post-production tools via the easyDCP software Applica-tion Programming Interface (API). Features like Dolby Atmos support, ad-vanced subtitling options, GPU-accelerated real-time playback, GPU-accelerated JPEG 2000 encoding (Windows), advanced scaling features, ex-tended export features, and for some years now authoring of Interoperable Master Packages (IMP) make it a reliable tool for generating DCPs and IMPs.

    Erlangen, Germany: With its DAB+ software library, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS offers a software defined radio solution that enables the implementation of digital radios with DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcasting) functionality. Available now, the update to the established library uses efficient spur suppression technology to significantly improve the quality of digital radio reception. It moreover enhances the reception sensitivity of the radio receivers. In turn, this extends the range of coverage for broadcasters and increases the number of channels that can be received in vehicles.
