Stefan Bruhn, a Senior Specialist at Ericsson Research, has been instrumental in the development and standardization of various 3GPP speech and audio codecs, making significant contributions to technologies such as AMR, AMR-WB, and AMR-WB+.Markus Multus, a distinguished figure in audio signal processing at Fraunhofer IIS, has spearheaded groundbreaking advancements in waveform and parametric audio/speech coding. His contributions to standards like MPEG xHE-AAC and 3GPP EVS have reshaped the landscape of audio compression technologies. Together, Bruhn and Multus will delve into the challenges and opportunities of integrating immersive audio solutions into digital communication platforms.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn from two of the industry’s leading experts as they share their knowledge and insights on immersive audio in digital meetings.

You will meet:

Markus Multrus, Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS Department of Audio and Multimedia

Markus is an accomplished figure in audio signal processing, with a Diplom-Ingenieur degree in electrical engineering from Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (2004). Since then, he has been pivotal in audio codec development at Fraunhofer IIS, focusing on waveform and parametric audio/speech coding and bandwidth extension. Multrus played a key role in the technical development of MPEG xHE-AAC and 3GPP EVS, contributing to standardization processes in ISO MPEG and 3GPP SA4. His publications cover topics such as background noise, compression efficiency, and computational complexity, showcasing his expertise in adaptive coding, arithmetic coding, and entropy coding. Multrus’s proficiency in psychoacoustics and speech technologies underscores his status as a leading expert in the field.

Stefan Bruhn, Dolby Laboratories

Stefan is a distinguished figure in the realm of speech coding, boasting a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the esteemed Technical University of Berlin (1995). Since then, he has been a cornerstone of Ericsson’s endeavors, contributing significantly to the development and standardization of various 3GPP speech and audio codecs, including AMR, AMR-WB, and AMR-WB+. With decades of experience at Ericsson, Bruhn has amassed a wealth of knowledge and expertise in speech coding technologies. His contributions have not only shaped the evolution of speech codecs but have also significantly impacted the telecommunications industry’s standards and interoperability. Bruhn’s impressive portfolio extends beyond his professional achievements, with more than 10 patents to his name, attesting to his innovative approach and invaluable contributions to the field of speech coding.
