Department of Electronic Media: System Theory and Technology

Many research activities are related to the DVB project (DVB: Digital Video Broadcasting) whose technical module was chaired by Prof. Reimers for 20 years until June 2012. Five out of 11 researchers (WiMis) are involved in subjects close to DVB. Three researchers are participating in the development and validation of DVB?s next generation standards (DVB-C2, DVB-T2, DVB-NGH [Next Generation Handheld]) which still plays an important role. The research area "Dynamic Broadcast" is worked upon by three colleagues. Three researchers are developing solutions for a transmission of media contents as effective as possible by the extension of cellular mobile networks, and one explores concepts for the inclusion of the public in the turnaround in energy policy by employing information technology.
