Fraunhofer IIS introduces SDK for JPEG XS image coding

The Fraunhofer-Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS presents its new Software Development Kit (SDK) with optimized functions to code images with the new JPEG XS codec. JPEG XS is suited for use in production environments where high resolution image data of up to 8k/60p UHD video must be transferred via Ethernet. The coding specialists of Fraunhofer IIS will demonstrate the JPEG XS codec as complete live stream with real-time playback.

easyDCP software suite – Ten years of enabling easy access to Digital Cinema

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.

DAB+ software library upgrade improves in-vehicle reception of digital radio

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.

    The Fraunhofer EZRT has developed “RoboCT,” a robot-assisted computed tomography (CT) system that comprehensively analyzes vehicle quality in the early development phase of automotive production – without disassembling the vehicle – and thus shortens development cycles. As part of a collaboration with automaker BMW, this system has now been installed in the production environment.

  • Current satellite communication systems use static beams, with little or no options of adjusting beam capacity to a varying demand. Beam hopping, based on the DVB-S2X broadcasting standard, allows redirecting capacity between beams, making satellite systems more flexible and efficient. Working with WORK Microwave and Eutelsat, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has successfully demonstrated beam hopping in an over-the-air test for the first time.

  • Numerous ore deposits have diminishing concentrations of mineable ore. In order to access the remaining ore, the mining industry uses elaborate procedures that consume large amounts of energy and water. The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, together with three other partners, intends to use artificial intelligence and sensor fusion in order to analyze the concentration of valuable minerals as early as possible in the process and thereby conserve resources.

    The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has successfully demonstrated the direct transmission of sensor data from multiple transmitters via a geostationary satellite. For the test transmission, the institute employed portable, ground-based transmitters equipped with small, omnidirectional C-band antennas. Fraunhofer IIS developed this particular transmission method specifically for Internet of Things applications that use satellites (Satellite IoT).
