Company Overview

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 principal 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 eight billion devices worldwide. The audio codec implementations are licensed to more than 1,000 companies.


Fraunhofer IIS offers production-quality software implementations of MPEG audio and video codecs optimized for low resource consumption on TMS320C6x DSPs, DaVinci video processors, and OMAP processors . Core Design Kits (ready-to-use software for easy implementation of multimedia codecs on embedded processors) are available for the following technologies: mp3 (MPEG Layer 3), MPEG-2/MPEG-4 AAC, MPEG-4 High Efficiency AAC v2, MPEG Surround, MPEG-4 (Enhanced) Low Delay AAC, DAB+/DAB, Digital Radio Mondiale, MPEG-4 and DASH streaming solutions.
