At the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute's wireless and video coding experts present their latest developments. Visit us at Fraunhofer Booth 7G31 in Hall 7 during February 27 and March 2.
You find the following highlights at our booth 7G31:
Tile Based DASH Streaming for Virtual Reality with HEVC – Enabler for high quality 360 degree Video
Only high resolution content can give a sense of immersion in VR video applications, but the large amount of data poses a challenge to common transport systems and decoders.
Tile based DASH streaming with lightweight HEVC Tile Aggregation allows to easily adapt the 360 degree video data stream to the current user viewport.
This technology allows reducing throughput and decoder requirements significantly without complex transcoding.
5G: mobile networks of the next Generation
The fifth-generation mobile network assumes a key position in the communication landscape of the future. Autonomous driving, Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things, and the tactile Internet for wireless object control in real time require a quantum leap in efficiency, the scope of performance and the availability of mobile communication networks.
The new 5G wireless communication technology will be the basis for the digital infrastructure of the future. The industry plans to deploy the first 5G-capable networks starting in 2020. In a consortium with manufacturers, network operators, users and research institutions Fraunhofer HHI will realize prototypes of the communication technology infrastructure for 5G early on, allowing it to be experienced in the 5G testbed of Berlin.
At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Fraunhofer HHI presents the following 5G technologies:
- Active antenna arrays for massive MIMO signal processing
- Quadriga: 3D/4D quasi-deterministic channel mode
- Millimeter wave technology

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale
Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...
For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
