Fraunhofer HHI at Mobile World Congress 2016, February 22-25 in Barcelona

17.02.2016

At the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2016 Fraunhofer HHI's wireless and video experts present their latest developments. Visit us at Fraunhofer Booth 7 G31.

You find the following highlights at our boot 7 G31:

HEVC high quality encoding with HDR support

Fraunhofer HHI presents the latest generation of its world-wide leading H.265/MPEG-HEVC software encoding technology, now enabling HEVC live encoding of 10-bit UHD video with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG). To satisfy the growing need for high resolution video in applications such as video on demand, mobile web streaming and high-quality TV broadcasting, the encoder scales from high efficient live encoding to very high quality fast offline encoding.

Advertisement Overlay Insertion for HEVC based services

Insertion of transparent advertisement overlays into coded video typically requires transcoding. Fraunhofer HHI has developed a lightweight technique for advertisement insertion into HEVC coded video in the compressed domain. The technique consists of merging several input video bitstreams into a single output video bitstream and inserting pre-encoded pictures that form the desired alpha-blended video output through standard prediction tools. Such a lightweight approach is computationally much less demanding than transcoding-based solutions and requires only a single standard-conformant HEVC video decoder which keeps end devices as simple as possible. The exhibit demonstrates live insertion of advertisement overlays into coded content video bitstreams and playout thereof.

Software Defined Radio

The Software Defined Radio – SDR – enables flexible wireless prototypes and products with support for multiple radio standards in a compact and energy efficient form factor. The SDR system replaces special and expensive custom hard-ware boards by FPGAs, DSPs and general purpose processors (GPPs) in MicroTCA form factor. The SDR platform allows prototyping for 4G and 5G systems to benchmark new waveforms, realize Multi-MIMO and Massive MIMO systems, as well as test novel wireless communication concepts.

Millimeter-Wave Radio Platform – For 5G Research and Experiments

Millimeter-wave transmission is seen as one of the disruptive technologies that will impact the next mobile radio network standard. The high performance digital radio testbed (Hirate) is a flexible hardware platform, which enables and supports applied research and prototyping in the envisioned milimeter-wave frequency bands.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

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...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

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...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
