For the Moving Pictures Technology department in Erlangen, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is currently seeking an/a
Intern / Student Assistant for the development of algorithms in post-production

Our Moving Picture Technologies Department conducts research and development into algorithms, which are used in the post-production of film material and integrates them into professional post-production tools. Post-production involves processing, editing and enhancing films with virtual effects. Light-field camera arrays open up a wide range of possibilities in post-production, such as creating virtual camera movement, a change in the depth of field or a shift in zoom referred to as a matrix effect. Creating these effects in cinema-quality requires processing the image material from the camera array with the use of algorithms. This work involves filtering, as well as the generation of disparity maps.

Additional information about light-field cameras in production and post-production, as well as a video about the origin of film is available at:

Participating in the development of post-production image processing algorithms for professional film and television production sounds exciting to you?

Then we have the right position for you:
You will implement and enhance post-production algorithms as well as test and document the results of your work.
