You have a vision about future directions in 2D video coding? You like to design technologies that are ready to conquer the world?
Then join our institute and contribute to the growth of our video activities
As video has a huge contribution on the overall Internet traffic, its efficient representation is of utmost importance. Based on existing video coding specifications such as VVC, you will be responsible to identify algorithmic and architectural potentials for improvement. For maximum impact, you will identify synergies with our existing technologies in audio coding and 6 DoF imaging. In collaboration with a team, you will then implement and evaluate promising coding approaches. Optionally, you also take over the lead of this team. Finally, you will present the found solutions within standardization bodies and on scientific conferences.
The Fraunhofer IIS »Audio and Media Technologies« division has been making its mark on media digitalization for over 30 years, developing pioneering standards such as MP3, AAC, xHE‑AAC and EVS. Motivated by this success, we aim to transfer this know-how to solve new challenges in video coding for better user experiences and higher system efficiency.
- A scientific degree (Master, PHD or equivalent) in Electronics, Computer Science, Natural Science, Engineering Science, or a related subject
- Solid practical experience in designing video coding algorithms
- Sound command of English for working in an international team
