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: MPSD team discovers light-induced ferroelectricity in strontium titanate

Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.

Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...

Im Focus: Determining the Earth’s gravity field more accurately than ever before

Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.

The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...

Im Focus: Tube anemone has the largest animal mitochondrial genome ever sequenced

Discovery by Brazilian and US researchers could change the classification of two species, which appear more akin to jellyfish than was thought.

The tube anemone Isarachnanthus nocturnus is only 15 cm long but has the largest mitochondrial genome of any animal sequenced to date, with 80,923 base pairs....

Im Focus: Tiny light box opens new doors into the nanoworld

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have discovered a completely new way of capturing, amplifying and linking light to matter at the nanolevel. Using a tiny box, built from stacked atomically thin material, they have succeeded in creating a type of feedback loop in which light and matter become one. The discovery, which was recently published in Nature Nanotechnology, opens up new possibilities in the world of nanophotonics.

Photonics is concerned with various means of using light. Fibre-optic communication is an example of photonics, as is the technology behind photodetectors and...

Im Focus: Cost-effective and individualized advanced electronic packaging in small batches now available

Fraunhofer IZM is joining the EUROPRACTICE IC Service platform. Together, the partners are making fan-out wafer level packaging (FOWLP) for electronic devices available and affordable even in small batches – and thus of interest to research institutes, universities, and SMEs. Costs can be significantly reduced by up to ten customers implementing individual fan-out wafer level packaging for their ICs or other components on a multi-project wafer. The target group includes any organization that does not produce in large quantities, but requires prototypes.

Research always means trying things out and daring to do new things. Research institutes, universities, and SMEs do not produce in large batches, but rather...
