Fraunhofer Digital Media Alliance

The Fraunhofer Institutes offering key components for digital cinema have pooled their expertise in the Fraunhofer Network for Digital Cinema.

The Digital Cinema Network offers innovative solutions for an all-digital cinema chain. The scope of activities ranges from camera and storage technology to innovative audio systems, post-production tools, projection and transmission techniques, and finally system solutions for digital archiving.

One important aspect is to integrate the systems into the existing film production workflow. Our customers in the sophisticated area of cinema technology benefit from this coordinated teamwork through new technologies, internationally recognized standardization know-how, and links with leading research and technology companies around the world. Customer inquiries and requests for cooperation in the field of digital cinema are coordinated by the Fraunhofer IIS in Erlangen.
