Fraunhofer HHI präsentiert Virtual Reality für 5G

Auf dem zweiten VR Ecosystems & Standards Workshop „Immersive Media Meets 5G“, der von dem 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), dem VR Industry Forum (VRIF) und der Advanced Imaging Society (AIS) organisiert wurde, präsentierte Gurdeep Singh Bhullar, Forscher am Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institut HHI, VR 360 Video Streaming für 5G. 3GPP hat Ende letzten Jahres die Spezifikation TS 26.118 zur Übertragung von 360-Grad-Videostreaming über 5G-Netzwerke verabschiedet. Die Demo des Fraunhofer HHI zeigt die erste Implementierung des „Advanced Video Media Profile“ aus der TS 26.118 für hochqualitatives VR Video Streaming in einer standardkonformen HTML5-Browserimplementierung.

VR bietet die Möglichkeit, in einem virtuellen Raum präsent zu sein, der durch die Wiedergabe von natürlichem oder synthetischem Bild und Ton entsteht. Um ein einheitliches Format zu erstellen, wurden in der 3GPP-Spezifikation TS 26.118 eine Reihe von VR-Video- und Audio-Profilen und deren Zuordnung zum „Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP“ (DASH) festgelegt. Es ist die erste Spezifikation von VR, die 360-Grad-Video-Streaming über 5G-Netzwerke ermöglicht und sich dabei auf mehrere in ISO/IEC 23090-2 spezifizierte Technologien stützt, auch bekannt als MPEG-OMAF. Der MPEG-OMAF-Standard ist der erste internationale Standard für die Speicherung und Verteilung von 360-Grad-Inhalten, an dessen Entwicklung die Abteilung „Videokodierung und Maschinelles Lernen“ am Fraunhofer HHI maßgeblich beteiligt war. MPEG-OMAF spezifiziert das tile-basierte Streaming (dt. kachelbasiert) von 360-Grad-Videos, wodurch eine deutlich höhere Auflösung am Endgerät erreicht wird. Der MPEG-OMAF Standard ermöglicht es, HEVC-Kachelströme so zu verpacken, dass der Empfänger, z. B. eine VR-Brille, ein TV-Bildschirm oder ein Webbrowser, die hochaufgelösten Tiles für das Ansichtsfenster des Benutzers und die niedrigaufgelösten Tiles für die sich außerhalb des Sichtfeldes befindenden Bereiche anfordern kann. Die Tiles werden zu einem einzigen HEVC-konformen Videostrom zusammengefasst und mit einem Hardware-Videodecoder auf dem Endgerät decodiert.

Die von den Fraunhofer HHI-Forschern Dimitri Podborski, Jangwoo Son und Gurdeep Singh Bhullar entwickelte Demo „Virtual Reality for 5G: 3GPP and OMAF compliant HTML5 MSE Playback of 360 VR Tiled Streaming“ zeigt die JavaScript Implementierung des „Advanced Video Media Profile“ von TS 26.118. Die Implementierung wird im Safari-Browser mit Unterstützung von HEVC Video durch die HTML5 MSE API und WebGL API für das Rendering demonstriert. Die Demo zeigt die Integration des „Advanced Video Media Profile“ in einem normalen Browser Framework. Am 15. April hat das Fraunhofer HHI auch den kompletten JavaScript-Quellcode auf GitHub veröffentlicht. Neben dem JavaScript Player enthält das GitHub-Repository Details, wie mit Hilfe von frei verfügbaren Open-Source-Tools standardkonforme Inhalte erzeugt werden können.

Gurdeep Singh Bhullar, Forscher in der Abteilung Videokodierung und Maschinelles Lernen am Fraunhofer HHI, präsentierte die Demo auf dem Workshop „Immersive Media Meets 5G“, der vom 15. bis 16. April 2019 bei Sony Pictures Entertainment in Culver City, Kalifornien, USA, stattfand. Der Workshop konzentriert sich auf immersive Formate und Dienste der nächsten Generation, einschließlich Virtual, Augmented & Mixed Reality, und möchte die Anwendungsmöglichkeiten von 5G durch immersive Dienste sowie deren Anforderungen untersuchen.

Süd-West-Chemie focusses on sustainability and saving resources

The conservation of resources and protection of the environment is growing increasingly more important in many fields of industry. The same applies to Süd-West-Chemie GmbH. The Swabian chemicals company seeks to contribute to environmental protection through investments as well as the use of more sustainable products and raw materials.

A new development to replace hazardous substances

In line with this ambition, SWC has developed a new product, Supraplast 3616. This special low-molecular phenol novolak is synthesised in an extremely narrow molecular weight distribution. This tremendously improves its properties in most high-performance applications. The free-monomer content approaches zero, which means that Supraplast 3616 does not require labelling as a hazardous substance.

Supraplast 3616 can be used to cure epoxy resin systems, for high-performance coatings and coatings for laminates, as well as in construction. In all these fields of application, it replaces hazardous substances and thus improves both the environmental compatibility as well as the occupational safety for users.

Investment in technical centre

In addition, SWC is investing in a new technical centre in the 50 kg range. It can be used to produce larger and more homogenous samples which are more useful for the development partner. Moreover, significantly more realistic results can be achieved and specialty products with batch sizes up to 50 kg produced.

Another advantage lies in the opportunity to more actively evaluate and research larger projects, such as the use of regenerative raw materials or recycling materials. The “PhenOlefin” project, which is carried out by SWC together with reputable research and industrial companies, is an example of such an initiative.

Promising PhenOlefin project participation

Biorefineries meanwhile offer a significant contribution to the provision of materially useful products from biomass. This is the fundamental idea behind the project. By further developing existing approaches, this can be expanded and improved even more.

The thermo-catalytic reforming (TCR) of biogenic raw and residual materials offers a highly promising approach to improving oil quality in this context. The decisive benefit of this process lies in the production of thermally stable, low-acid, and virtually water-free oils. Moreover, TCR produces phenol-rich process water, which can also be used to produce technical phenol-based products.

The goal of the “PhenOlefin” project lies in developing necessary procedures for the secondary refining of the TCR-oil platform as well as in making the TCR process water, which is a by-product, technologically and economically usable in the form of bio-based phenols and olefins.

With the project, SWC strives to additionally develop duroplastic resins based on renewable raw materials. These contain the phenols gained from the TCR oil as well as the process water. The resins are intended for use in demanding applications such as grinding discs, brake and clutch linings, moulding compounds, adhesives, and coatings. Moreover, conventional synthetic additives should be replaced by suitable bio-based phenols. Not least, sufficient insights into the functional properties and reactivity of the new phenols, as well as the capacity to formulate and process them, should be gathered to better evaluate practice-oriented questions.

Further projects are ongoing

In addition to “PhenOlefin”, SWC currently has other running projects that strive to more sustainably shape the use of recycling material in moulding compound production. In the course thereof, SWC is, for example, developing products for application in the automotive industry which consist of recycled carbon fibres, while furthermore evaluating the processing of melamine wastes into moulding material for sanitary fixtures.

With these projects, SWC wants to contribute to saving resources and protecting the environment. You can receive more information by sending an e-mail to info@swc.de and sales@swc.de.

CRM ist Pflicht – BI die Kür

Mit Business Intelligence (BI) verwenden klein- und mittelständische Unternehmen die im CRM-System vorhandenen Geschäftsdaten unmittelbar für erfolgreiches unternehmerisches Handeln! Hierzu sind diese auf einen Nenner zu bringen, zu visualisieren und interpretieren. Unidienst setzt die Geschäftsprozesse der Kunden in Microsoft Dynamics 365 um und liefert das Know How für interaktive Berichte mit Microsoft Power BI.

Microsoft Power BI – die logische Konsequenz der UniPRO/Solutions für Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement. Denn Kunden bedienen Tools für Vertrieb, Customer Service, Field Service, Project Management und Marketing. Sie generieren Geschäftsdaten, die nicht ungenutzt stehen bleiben dürfen. Stefan Wambacher, Geschäftsführer seit Jahresanfang 2019, hat Microsoft Power BI „im Gepäck“ und nimmt es in das Portfolio von Unidienst auf.

Während das CRM-System die Geschäftsprozesse eines Unternehmens abbildet, strukturiert und optimiert, zeigt BI deren Performance auf. Stefan Wambacher sieht Business Intelligence als Erfolgsmeldung gelebter Geschäftsprozesse. Wäre dem nicht so, müssen Entscheider Stärken und Schwächen erkennen und sofort handeln! Interaktive Reports stellen z.B. Wandlungsraten, Deckungsbeiträge oder Aktivitäten dar – visualisiert etwa als Grafiken oder Landkarten. Business Analytics soll dabei nicht Data Mining oder Cluster sein, sondern das IST – transparente Ergebnisse der Prozesse in leicht interpretierbarer Oberfläche.  
Der effektive Nutzen aus Business Analytics ist für Unternehmen die Erfolgstransparenz, ohne sich in ausufernden Auswertungsszenarien zu verlieren.

Wie in Microsoft Dynamics Customer Engagement gilt bei Power BI der Self Service Gedanke: Geübte Anwender ohne technischen Hintergrund erstellen eigene Business Analytics. Abhängig von der Komplexität der Analyse ist in den ersten Schritten wohl Unterstützung notwendig. Hier springt Unidienst mit dem Wissen um die Datenmodelle mit Dienstleistung ein. Die Kunden wissen, welche Geschäftsdaten relevant sind – Unidienst wie sie auf einen Blick mit Microsoft Power BI darstellbar sind.

New jobs for Maryborough a step closer thanks to Queensland government support

Rheinmetall NIOA Munitions today welcomed the announcement by the Queensland state government that it would provide $7.5 million in support to establish a 155mm shell plant in Maryborough, Queensland.

A $60 million greenfield development, the new facility will be capable of manufacturing the world’s most sophisticated and technologically advanced artillery shells for both the domestic and export markets.

Construction of the new facility is expected to commence in the second half of 2019, with the plant to be fully operational by 2022, creating up to 100 new long-term jobs in the Maryborough region.

The application for funding was approved under the state government’s $150 million ‚Jobs and Regional Growth Fund‘, which aims to support projects that will have a significant impact on a regional community such as the Fraser Coast Region.

Werner Kraemer, CEO Rheinmetall Waffe Munition and Chairman of Rheinmetall NIOA Munitions, stated that "the planned forging facility in Maryborough is an essential cornerstone for supporting the Australian Land Forces‘ Land 17 programme, and underpins Rheinmetall’s strategy of creating new, highly skilled jobs in Australia. Furthermore, the Maryborough facility will help Rheinmetall establish a long-term sustainable supply chain for ammunition components serving different export markets."

Robert Nioa, Managing Director of NIOA and Director of Rheinmetall NIOA Munitions, said that "this strong show of support by the state government will help deliver real benefits to the local community in Maryborough for decades to come by creating up to 100 local highly skilled jobs. The establishment of this new state-of-the-art facility will help to create a sovereign munitions manufacturing capability and ensure that future munitions supplied to our forces will be Australian made."

He also paid tribute to the State Member of Parliament for Maryborough, Bruce Saunders MP, for his strong advocacy for the project. "The local member for Maryborough has worked tirelessly to help deliver a positive outcome for the project. It’s great to see the local member advocating so hard for his local community, helping to deliver solid outcomes and real jobs".

The project remains subject to final approval of the company’s application for $28.5 million in funding to the federal government’s ‚Regional Growth Fund‘. A final determination on the application is expected before the end of March 2019.

More focus on photonics with new brand, structure and corporate culture

Under the claim “More Light”, Jenoptik positions itself more strongly as an application specialist for photonic technologies. Core elements such as structure, corporate culture and brand as the basis of the Strategy 2022 were launched successfully. The new brand identity was presented for the first time at SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco.

Jenoptik is now presenting itself under the motto “More Light” as an application specialist for photonic technologies. Together with employees, Jenoptik President & CEO Dr. Stefan Traeger and the President of the North American optics business Jay Kumler launched the new Jenoptik for the trade audience and customers at SPIE Photonics West. Jenoptik is represented at this leading trade fair for optics and photonics with a new booth and presents numerous solutions in the fields of optics and photonics for semiconductor manufacturing, laser material processing as well as for healthcare and life science applications.

Core elements structure, culture and brand developed in only ten months

Within the framework of the Strategy 2022, which was first announced by the Executive Board in February 2018, Jenoptik successfully established a new corporate structure, new values and a new brand at the beginning of 2019. These three core elements were developed in the short period of only ten months.

Since January 1, 2019, the Jenoptik Group has a new corporate structure with three clearly positioned photonics divisions to support future growth. The three divisions are based on business models and a common understanding of markets and customers: Light & Optics for the global OEM business, Light & Production for the industrial customer business and Light & Safety for the business with public-sector customers. Jenoptik’s mechatronics business was merged in the fall of 2018 under the new Vincorion brand, which has already started successfully with much positive customer feedback.

The new corporate brand presentation under the claim “More Light” was completely revised with more color and an open design that also reflects the new corporate values “open”, “driving” and “confident”. In the first step the nearly 4,000 Jenoptik employees worldwide were informed about these changes with a company-wide "More Light" tour in January 2019.

Employees and many customers gave the new Jenoptik its basic direction

The new brand positioning and the new values, which provide maximum support for Strategy 2022, were developed in a company-wide project in recent months. Initially, this was based on comprehensive analyses and surveys among employees and customers. “It was important for us to listen first and let all those who know the company best have their say. Interestingly, the employees’ assessments of Jenoptik today and where changes are necessary were very similar across all locations worldwide”, says Stefan Traeger, Jenoptik President & CEO about the intensive process of the past months. “It is now a matter of really anchoring what has been worked out in the company and making Jenoptik fit for the coming years. In addition to establishing the values and the common brand within the company, the focus in the current 2019 fiscal year will be particularly on operational excellence in production, an innovation-enhancing process landscape and the expansion of the Asian business.

Jenoptik will publish information on the development in the last fiscal year on February 13, 2019.

ZALARIS Deutschland AG takes over ERP system conversion at the Protestant Foundation Neuerkerode/ Germany

Founded 150 years ago, the Protestant Foundation Neuerkerode (ESN) manages as a holding 9 institutions and societies in the health sector and the care for the elderly and disabled people in southeastern Lower Saxony/ Germany. It has a total of 2800 employees.

In mid-2018, ZALARIS Deutschland AG was awarded the contract to transfer the complete ERP system for the areas of finance, controlling and personnel into the new SAP System S / 4 HANA. On the one hand, this means optimizing the central business processes in finance and human resources, and on the other hand introducing a workflow-oriented solution with an intuitive interface.

In the past 6 months, the internal BI system was also implemented on SAP BW and BO as well as the renewal of the planning process with SAP BPC.

At the same time, the SAP recruiting system SuccessFactors was introduced and outsourced by ZALARIS as part of a five-year contract.

At the same time that the S / 4 HANA system went live, Neuerkerode decided to use another cloud solution from SAP – SF Learning – will be used by ZALARIS for internal training management and in 2019 all 2,800 employees will attend a seminar, that improves cooperation. The planning is done by SF Learning. ZALARIS delivers all necessary SAP licenses for the overall project and also carries out the maintenance of the SAP licenses for the Protestant Foundation Neuerkerode.
