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


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: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
