Fraunhofer IIS Licenses MPEG-H Audio Patents to LG Electronics

ERLANGEN, Germany — Fraunhofer IIS is pleased to announce the licensing of its MPEG-H Audio patents to LG Electronics Inc., allowing LG to produce products which feature MPEG-H Audio.

The MPEG-H Audio system, substantially developed by Fraunhofer IIS, is specified in TV broadcast standards such as ATSC 3.0 and DVB. Moreover, MPEG-H Audio has already been successfully tested in many European countries where digital television systems are based on Digital Video Broadcasting.

Other attractive sources of MPEG-H content are immersive music and video streaming services such as those recently announced at CES 2019 in Las Vegas.
