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: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
