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: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
