Fraunhofer IIS is Europe's leading research institutes. At NAB, they introduced MPEG compression for 5.1 surround sound, a real-time encoder for surround audio on the web, and a utility that lets you hear the results of audio compression in real-time, while you are mixing your audio. Matthias Rose, Head of Marketing Communications for Audio and Multimedia, Fraunhofer, explains.

Michael Kammes interviews Jerry Pierce, Senior Vice-President, Hollywood Post Alliance, about its push to standardize IMF (Interoperable Mastering Format) and why this standardization is important to the professional side of the industry.
