FOKUS at IFA’08 – Convergence and Community – interactive, personalized, mobile, and location-based

27.08.2008
Fraunhofer FOKUS presents new innovations in Broadcasting, IPTV and Web 2.0 at the IFA ‘08

At this year’s IFA – the world’s largest fair for consumer electronics – the Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS is presenting its latest innovations which put the accent squarely on ‘prosumers’ – producers and consumers of media services and content at one and the same time.

Exhibits like ‘Interactive, personalized IPTV’ and ‘Web in your Hand’ present solutions that satisfy needs for the shared use of broadcasting, Internet and (tele)communications services, while also enabling rapid realization of services in disparate media such as Web 2.0 services on mobile end devices.

Interactive and personalized IPTV means integration of interactive content, personalized advertising and context-dependent add-on information in traditional broadcasting environments, and is one of the highlights at this year’s IFA presented by the FOKUS Media Interoperability Lab. What’s more, innovations in communication between various end devices will also be on show which give users a shared media experience even over remote distances.

A Showcase developed in partnership with television’s RTL Group will also demonstrate new forms of target group specific advertising in linear and non-linear media formats.

Web in your Hand, Widgets as a platform for mobile Web2.0 –
Shared experiences and spontaneous communication between large numbers of people is a hallmark feature of Web2.0. Fraunhofer FOKUS brings ‘tiny’ self-contained Web applications – known as ‘widgets’ – to the mobile phone and also equips mobiles with all the functions of modern telephony.

Whether it’s mobile car sharing or digital location-based notepads – Web 2.0 services can be rapidly changed and extended both on the provider and the user side. Even without permanent Internet connectivity. Fraunhofer FOKUS presents FOKUS Mobile Widget Runtime in hall 5.3, stand 02.

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

Im Focus: Computer-Designed Customized Regenerative Heart Valves

Cardiovascular tissue engineering aims to treat heart disease with prostheses that grow and regenerate. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich, the Technical University Eindhoven and the Charité Berlin have successfully implanted regenerative heart valves, designed with the aid of computer simulations, into sheep for the first time.

Producing living tissue or organs based on human cells is one of the main research fields in regenerative medicine. Tissue engineering, which involves growing...

Im Focus: Light-induced superconductivity under high pressure

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.

Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
