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.

Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.
Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...
Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
