An additional video analysis tool helps to identify and arrange i. a. representative scenes in movies, thus allowing better organization and management of digital media content.
“AVInspector” analyses audio and video content in real-time and automatically detects errors and quality issues, e.g. blocking artefacts, ringing or blurring. There are special analysis modules that recognize errors according to defined criteria and visually highlight them depending on the intensity of the error detected. Via timecode, the exact position of the faulty image or sequence is located. This insures perfect footage already during the production process.
AVInspector opens up new opportunities for TV and Radio producers. The whole video and audio content can be automatically checked for errors, making the workflow much easier. Broadcasting and video archives benefit from Fraunhofer IDMT's software, too. Dr. Uwe Kühhirt, head of the Audio-visual Systems group at Fraunhofer IDMT, explains: “Our automated and continuous error detection ensures that only perfect material is edited, published and archived. This saves not only work, but also time and costs, since there is no tedious manual screening for errors any longer.“ In addition, this technology can also be used in broadcasting networks to check the quality of the signals on the receiver's side and to optimize it accordingly.
AVInspector is supplemented by additional video analysis tools that automatically recognize and compile the most representative keyframes, shots and scenes in a film or video clip. This way, the material in large databases can be managed easier, comprehensive video archives can be searched quicker and film makers are supported in drama production and compilations of films and videos.
Fraunhofer IDMT presents AVInspector at the International Trade Fair for broadcasting and television, IBC, in Amsterdam from September 9 to 13, 2011. Visit us at the Fraunhofer booth in hall 8, stand B 80.

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
