  • hub.berlin, the "Business Festival" of the Bitkom digital association will take place in Berlin from 10 to 11 April. More than 5,000 leading international heads of digitization from the fields of IT, telecommunications and new media will meet in Berlin to shape the future and create trends. In addition to the varied programme with keynotes, lectures and workshops, there will also be various exhibition and tech-touch areas. The Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT presents its project results on the acoustically advanced virtualization of products and production processes (AVP3) at the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft booth in the "Interactive Area".

  • Deepfakes are manipulations of audio-visual material that are realistic enough to be undetectable by humans. In order to reveal them, automatic analysis methods are needed, which can detect very subtle traces of modifications with the respective material. At the NAB Show, which takes place in Las Vegas from April 8 to 11, 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT will present its audio forensics toolkit for reliably detecting and localizing editing in audio material.

  • At Hannover Messe, taking place April 1st to 5th, the Oldenburg based branch of Fraunhofer IDMT will be presenting the latest version of its intelligent system for acoustic condition monitoring (Hall 2, Booth C22). The experts from the Hearing, Speech and Audio Technology (HSA) division of Fraunhofer IDMT have developed a solution that uses smart acoustic sensors to monitor the condition of an industrial machine by analyzing the sound it produces. This allows detecting malfunction at a very early stage, so that machine downtime can be reduced to a minimum.

  • From April 1st to 5th, the Oldenburg based branch of Fraunhofer IDMT will be attending Hannover Messe to present a speech-to-text process documentation system to be used in industrial settings (Hall 2, Booth C22). The system allows users to efficiently capture various kinds of information with the help of automatic speech recognition, leading to significant time and cost savings. It uses intelligent speech-to-text technology to provide a convenient, hands-free user interface, which works reliably also in noisy and rough environments, and which does not have to have access to a server or the Internet.

    With their audio design of Deutsche Telekom’s smart speaker, audio experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Oldenburg have succeeded in creating a superb sound in a small space. A film is now available that provides an insight into the product’s development, how it works and all the things it can do. It covers the whole process from initial idea to the design phase and the partners’ collaboration to the realization of acoustic end-of-line testing in production.

    The Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg has developed the audio technology for Deutsche Telekom’s smart speaker. At the heart of the work is the optimized interaction of speakers and microphones for voice control even in a noisy environment. What’s more, the experts have achieved particularly good acoustics for telephony and music playback in a small enclosure. The product will be launched on 31.08.2018 at IFA in Berlin, the trade exhibition for consumer electronics and home appliances.
