MOSAIC 2B kick-off

The MOSAIC 2B project kicked-off on December, 2nd in Kaiserslautern, Germany. All six partners of the consortium introduced their organisation and defined their goals and expectations from the MOSAIC 2B project. Discussions included the definition of global goals and scope, specific technical topics and management issues.

The participants pictured are, from left: Adriano Galati (Disney Reasearch Zurich, SUI), Prof. Didier Stricker (, GER), Nicole Lackas-Bierz (, GER), Prof. Alta van der Merwe (University of Pretoria, RSA), Daniel Steffen (, GER), Danie Behr (EPI-USE, RSA), Seth Frey (Disney Research Zurich, SUI), Luis Almeida (Centro de Computação Gráfica, POR), Jaco Prinsloo (EPI-USE, RSA), and Mélani Prinsloo (Infusion, RSA).

Graphitech has succesfully presented and disseminated the VISION project at the networking sessions in parallel with the ICT 2013 in Vilnius, between 6th and 8th November.

The wide audience has provided good feedbacks and a remarkable interest in the topic of computer graphics.

The session has been presented in collaboration with partners.

Fraunhofer HHI joined

The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute joined by first January 2013.

We welcome Fraunhofer HHI - in particular to Prof. Peter Eisert - and are looking for a fruitful collaboration.

With this new member consolidates its positioning as strong international network in the area of digital technology.

The cooperation with one of the most prestigious Fraunhofer Institute represents a key step in the development of network, and is in the same time a confirmation of the network's core concepts and orientations developed since its foundation.

Profile of Fraunhofer HHI:

Fraunhofer HHI is concentrated to develop the principles of information technology and to demonstrate new applications for new products in partnership with the industry.

The core competencies of HHI are in the areas of Photonic Networks and Systems, Mobile Broadband Systems, Photonic Components and Electronic Imaging.

Activities in photonic networks and components expand a spectrum from highly capacitive flexible long haul networks to the broadband inhouse network and their components.

R&D-activities in the area of mobile broadband systems focus to design aspects of future cellular systems and their realization for various mobile communications systems. multi-antenna systems (MIMO) up to 1 Gbit/s, resource management for both cellular mobile, radio systems and WPAN-systems up to 60 GHz.

Optical and opto-electronic components and modules are developed and manufactured. Our range includes InP-based lasers and detectors with wavelengths from 1.1 µm to 2.0 µm, polymer lightwave circuits, and diffractive optics.

Main topics are further video- and audio-coding / transmission (Video over IP), the 2D und 3D image processing, the image reproduction in virtual environments, teleimmersive systems, autostereoscopic displays, mixed reality displays, man-machine-interactions and information and videoretrieval.
