Audio and Media Tech­no­lo­gies

Do you have a pas­sion for music or movies?
Are you inte­rested in deve­lo­ping the latest audio and media tech­no­lo­gies and app­ly­ing them to future pro­ducts?


In that case, we have the right posi­tion for you!
In this posi­tion, you will have the oppor­tu­nity to make a signi­fi­cant impact on the future of enter­tain­ment elec­tro­nics, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and media tech­no­lo­gies. You deve­lop algo­rithms that will one day make mobile tele­phone con­ver­sa­ti­ons sound crys­tal clear. You bring 3D sound to tele­vi­sion, cars and vir­tual rea­lity app­li­ca­ti­ons. You will give com­pu­ters a voice, create arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence and help make sci­ence fic­tion rea­lity. You will make sure that Hol­ly­wood can create and pro­cess digi­tal motion pic­tures. And you deve­lop pro­duc­tion tools for light field record­ings. These and many other exci­ting activi­ties await you.

About us
For over 30 years, the insti­tute’s Audio and Media Tech­no­lo­gies divi­sion has been sha­ping the glo­bally deployed stan­dards and tech­no­lo­gies in the fields of audio and moving pic­ture pro­duc­tion. Star­ting with the crea­tion of mp3 and con­ti­nuing with the co-deve­lop­ment of AAC and the Digi­tal Cinema Initia­tive test plan, almost all con­su­mer elec­tro­nic devices, com­pu­ters and mobile pho­nes are equip­ped with sys­tems and tech­no­lo­gies from Erlan­gen today. Mean­while, a new genera­tion of best-in-class media tech­no­lo­gies is ele­vat­ing the user expe­ri­ence to new heights. Always con­si­de­ring the demands of the mar­ket, Fraun­ho­fer IIS deve­lops tech­no­logy that makes memo­r­able moments.
