Fraunhofer-Institut für Integrierte Schaltungen IIS Demonstrates Real-Time MPEG-H Audio Encoder System for Broadcast Applications at IBC

At IBC 2014, Fraunhofer IIS is showcasing an interactive 3D sound transmission for broadcasters. This new TV audio system is based on the MPEG-H Audio standard, and will allow TV broadcasters to offer live broadcasts with object-based 3D audio across all devices, providing viewers the ability to tailor the audio to suit their personal listening preferences. At IBC (booth B80 in Hall 8), Fraunhofer IIS will feature a real-time hardware prototype with the ability to encode audio for live broadcasts from stereo up to 3D sound in 7.1+4 H format with additional tracks for interactive objects including commentary in several languages, ambient sound or sound effects. Fraunhofer's real-time system is comprised of real-time encoder for contribution from outside broadcasts to the studio, where a professional decoder recovers the uncompressed audio for further editing and mixing; real-time encoder for emission to consumers - over the Internet for new media use or for trials of upcoming over-the-air broadcast systems such as ATSC 3.0; and professional decoder used to monitor the emission encoder's output.

Fraunhofer IIS and Unified Streaming Collaborate to Extend HE-AAC MPEG-DASH Streaming Ecosystem

Fraunhofer IIS and Unified Streaming announced their partnership combining USP's adaptive streaming expertise with Fraunhofer's High-Efficiency AAC (HE-AAC) multichannel audio codec. This collaboration extends the ecosystem for HE-AAC MPEG-DASH streaming, enabling broadcasters and service providers to deliver the best possible MPEG-DASH streaming experience for video and audio-only services. Fraunhofer IIS and Unified Streaming collaborated on the optimization of the USP streaming tools for use with HE-AAC, the most efficient, flexible and high-quality multichannel and stereo audio codec. HE-AAC offers the flexibility to encode up to 48 audio channels in various configurations including mono, stereo 5.1 and 7.1 surround. Low data rates -- such as 5.1 surround sound at only 64 kbit/s, allow surround sound to be streamed without the need to switch to stereo when bandwidth gets constrained. Therefore it can ensure a truly seamless adaptive switching experience. In audio-only services such as Internet radio, it can improve the quality of experience for listeners and enable a more efficient large-scale deployment of Internet delivered content.
