  • 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.

    The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is launching a 5G initiative in Bavaria. The “5G Bavaria” initiative supports the transition from research on the new 5G mobile communication standard to its application. Specifically, 5G Bavaria involves a test center at Fraunhofer IIS in Erlangen and various testing environments in Bavaria. Here, companies evaluate new mobile communications functionalities in a 5G overall system context by means of simulation and emulation in the laboratory as well as in an actual mobile communications environment.

    Wireless sensors are an essential component in the Industrial Internet of Things IIoT. To record and transmit various kinds of physical pa-rameters and data, such sensors require permanent power. Fraunhofer IIS has developed a self-sufficient power supply specifically for IIoT sensors that uses existing vibrations, for example from machines, to generate electrical ener-gy. Thus, these sensors can be used for condition monitoring in production and require neither power cables nor constant battery changes.

    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.
