At the 2014 NAB Show Fraunhofer IIS is demonstrating its new TV audio system’s interactivity by presenting excerpts from field tests at live broadcast events. Fraunhofer’s Interactive 3D Audio System for TV allows viewers to personalize sound broadcasts to suit their personal preference. With a click of the remote, viewers can boost otherwise hard-to-understand dialogue or create a “home team” mix of sports broadcasts.

In addition, Fraunhofer will show a new soundbar concept that delivers 3D audio without the wires, multiple external speakers or complex equipment settings needed for traditional speaker-based 3D sound. As the provider of the HE-AAC Multichannel audio codec powering half the world’s TV surround sound today, Fraunhofer IIS continues to unveil new technologies that bring interactive 3D TV audio entertainment to reality for broadcasters and consumers.
“Future UHDTVs might build similar technology into the TV itself, offering consumers an ‘un-box, plug-in, enjoy’ experience with immersive sound. That will be much better than the soundbars of today, with no wires or external components at all,” said Robert Bleidt, General Manager, Audio and Multimedia Division, Fraunhofer USA Digital Media Technologies. “While high-end home theater enthusiasts will likely still prefer nine or eleven separate speakers for the ultimate 3D sound quality, this new soundbar concept will greatly enhance the audio experience for a broad consumer base without complex installation and set-up,” he added.
Show attendees can experience the future of interactive television audio at the Fraunhofer booth at NAB (South Hall, booth SU 6117).
When it comes to advanced audio technologies for the rapidly evolving media world, Fraunhofer IIS stands alone. For more than 25 years, digital audio technology has been the principle focus of the Audio and Multimedia division. From the creation of mp3 and the co-development of AAC to the future of audio entertainment for broadcast, Fraunhofer IIS brings innovations in sound to reality.
Fraunhofer IIS technologies enable more than 7 billion devices worldwide. The audio codec implementations are licensed to more than 1,000 companies.
Fraunhofer IIS is based in Erlangen, Germany, and is an institute of Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Europe’s largest applied research organization with over 23,000 employees.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
