Whether for live events, theme parks or product presentations – Fraunhofer IDMT provides audio modules for any application scenario. The SpatialSound modules can be individually integrated into existing audio networks and extend existing systems with new sound and 3D audio effects. For the first time Fraunhofer IDMT presents its SpatialSound Toolkit at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, March 21 to 24, 2012, in hall 8, booth H20.
The SpatialSound Toolkit from Fraunhofer IDMT provides with its modules and module packages the latest generation of 3D audio technology e. g. for directed sound, scene automation and spatial sound reproduction. "For the first time, our innovative sound concepts and audio tools can be integrated into existing audio networks, mixers or audio processors extending previous functionalities by impressive sound effects, either in single use or combined with each other. This opens up unique opportunities for DJs or large event organizers to work creatively with three-dimensional sound", comments René Rodigast, Head of Professional Audio at Fraunhofer IDMT.
With "SpatialSound Stage" and "SpatialSound Wave", Fraunhofer's modular system offers two directly adoptable module packages for 3D worlds. SpatialSound Stage allows directed sound reproduction and scene automation for stage shows and live events. The audience is totally immersed into the stage action, can follow actor's movements acoustically and always perceive soloists from the right perspective.
SpatialSound Wave is a package for spatial sound reproduction supplied by Fraunhofer IDMT. For stages, conferences, clubs and in entertainment, the audience experiences a naturally immersive sound scenario, where acoustic effects always come from the right direction and distance in any seat.
In addition to these module packages, also individually adaptable modules like a dynamic acoustic room simulation can be integrated into audio platforms according to requirements and the acoustics of the location. Whether conference center or showroom – the audience experiences the acoustic impression of a great concert hall. And even music reproduction and intelligibility of speakers can be significantly improved by integrating these modules.
Meet us in hall 8 at booth H20 and experience music scenarios with even better sound and impressive 3D sound effects created by the SpatialSound Toolkit.
Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau conducts applied research in the field of digital media and works on leading projects and topics in the field of audio-visual applications. Besides sound solutions for home and professional users (e.g. IOSONO® Wave Field Synthesis technology) software technologies for analysis and characterization of multimedia content as well as audio-visual applications for medical engineering are being developed. Furthermore interactive AV applications for entertainment and knowledge management and the design of architectures for digital online-distribution are in the institute’s research focus. The Fraunhofer IDMT realizes innovative scientific results through prototypes and applicable solutions which come up to customer and market requirements in close cooperation with partners in economy, culture and science. Since 2008, Fraunhofer IDMT has two new branch labs. The department Children’s Media, based in Erfurt, works on the development of innovative computer based program and edutainment formats for children and adolescents. The new project group Hearing, Speech and Audio Technology, based in Oldenburg, researches topics of audio system technology concerning the fields of health, transportation, multimedia and telecommunication.Contact Person:

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
