For the »Moving Picture Technologies« department in Erlangen, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is currently seeking a
Student Assistant for the development of a cloud service for Hollywood productions

More and more movie theaters around the world are replacing traditional film reels with digital cinema. In line with this trend, the Fraunhofer IIS has developed software solutions for the creation and playback of Digital Cinema Packages (DCP).
A new addition to the software suite is the Interoperable Master Package (IMP) capability, IMP formats typically being used for data transfer between film studios and post-production facilities. Today, cloud services such as AWS or Azure are often used for this. To make sure that existing software solutions are compatible with such cloud services, a new licensing mechanism is needed to ensure that product use can be properly monitored and controlled. The specific task is to develop and implement new concepts that enable existing solutions to communicate with cloud services as part of a user/software license management solution. The project can also be used as the basis of a bachelor or master thesis.
