Departments and Groups
Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology
The Acoustics department develops and provides innovative solutions for various application areas and industries, such as live & installed sound, automotive and machine acoustics, or consumer electronics. From the conceptual design over planning and consulting to implementation, the department provides individual, full-fledged solutions tailored to the needs of customers and markets.
In Bio-inspired Computing, computer simulation models for hearing and seeing are developed, tested in different practical applications and applied in hardware platforms.
Children are the future of our society, and the way children use media has a main impact on this future. The Children’s Media department of the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology, IDMT, deals with technology based media that is important for children and young people.
Data Representation and Interfaces
The Data Representation and Interfaces group focuses on the development of standard-conformant technologies in content management and knowledge transfer, in document management (repositories) and metadata for learning and practicing environments.
Media Management & Delivery - M2D
The age of digitization: Increasingly powerful technologies become available for broad levels of the population, who use them ever more effectively and thus increasingly participate in media production and development processes. An abundance of new usage forms and business models emerges, resulting in profound structural changes within the entire media chain – from production, aggregation and distribution to monetization and consumption.
Project Group Hearing, Speech and Audio Technology
The goal of the project group is to further develop the scientific and technological knowledge in hearing rehabilitation, speech communication and audio technology to decisively improve hearing in everyday situations.
