Fraunhofer IIS Department Moving Picture Technologies Optimizes Digital Media and Cinema Workflows at NAB 2016
Fraunhofer Digital Media Alliance´s institute Fraunhofer IIS launches high-quality cross-workflow solutions for today’s needs, while driving digital media innovation
he Fraunhofer IIS Department Moving Picture Technologies, the leading provider of future-oriented solutions for enhanced digital media and cinema workflows, today launches and demonstrates the latest innovations for industry players to stay competitive in the evolving media landscape.
Fraunhofer IIS´ Department Moving Picture Technologies will showcase its latest advances for cost-efficient, future-proof, secure and standards compliant solutions. These solutions bring new creative possibilities and immersive viewing experiences. By seamlessly integrating and enhancing each step of any digital media or cinema workflow, Fraunhofer IIS addresses today’s needs, while opening opportunity for the industry’s future. At NAB 2016, highlights will include:
New Enhancements to Award Winning easyDCP Software Suite
With more than 1,500 licensees worldwide, Fraunhofer IIS’ easyDCP Software Suite is one of the leading solutions for creation, playback and quality control of digital cinema packages (DCP) and Interoperable Master Format Packages (IMPs) based on ISO and SMPTE standards. At NAB, Fraunhofer IIS will introduce a new export module for Final Cut Pro X to create DCPs directly from the timeline. New features of the standalone software include a package validation module for reliable quality assurance of both, newly generated or existing packages. Additionally, easyDCP will support a new generation of object-based audio formats along with enabling authoring of SMPTE IMF Application 2 packages, which Netflix accepts. easyDCP is available as a standalone software or as plug-ins for various post-production tools like Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve and Quantel’s Pablo Rio.
Use Case for Lici® Codec as Mezzanine Codec
The implementation of Fraunhofer IIS’ Lici
codec within keyboard/video/mouse (KVM) solutions will be showcased with partner IHSE GmbH at NAB. Lici
is a cost-effective solution for image processing and transmission systems in professional production. Also ideal for use in cameras and other multimedia applications, Lici
adapts image data streams to the available infrastructure and bandwidth while maintaining resolution and dynamic range enhancements. The result is visually lossless transfer of 2K, 4K and 8K content for 30 Hz and 60 Hz. Additionally, Lici
is perfect for use with HDR monitors due to its 12 bit color depth. Lici
can easily be implemented into existing or new systems. Future applications will include Video over IP and Media Contribution.
Latest Developments for Fraunhofer’s Light-field Multi-Camera Post-Production Plug-In-Suite
Fraunhofer IIS light-field technology was recently encapsulated into plug-ins for The Foundry’s Nuke software suite, allowing movie professionals to take advantage of multi-camera arrays and multi-view processing. Light-field technology exploits recording of several camera views of the same scene from a single shot. Based on the different views, depth maps, virtual camera movements and changes in focus can be realized in post-production and creative options formerly only possible with CGI, such as enhancements for virtual backlot applications, can be realized for live-action content. Test licenses are available for first professional users. At the show, Fraunhofer IIS’s scientists are discussing current use cases, along with what the industry can expect in terms of adoption of the technology in the near future.
To see Fraunhofer IIS’s light-field technology in action, a short film created by German Stuttgart Media University HDM can be viewed at:
