Prof. Ulrich H. Reimers studied communication engineering at Technische Universitaet Braunschweig, Germany. Following research at the university’s Institut fuer Nachrichtentechnik (IfN - Institute for Communications Technology) he joined BTS Broadcast Television Systems in Darmstadt. Between 1989 and 1993 he was Technical Director of Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) in Hamburg - one of the major public broadcasters in Germany. Since 1993 he has been a Professor at Technische Universitaet Braunschweig and Managing Director of the Institut fuer Nachrichtentechnik (Institute for Communications Technology). Prof. Reimers was chairman of the Technical Module within the DVB Project from 1993 to 2012. Since 2012 he is Vice President Strategic Development and Technology Transfer of Technische Universitaet Braunschweig. He is the author of more than 120 publications, among others of various text books on DVB. Prof. Reimers received a significant number of international and national awards. He is an IEEE Life Fellow and the recipient of the IEEE Masaru Ibuka Consumer Electronics Award. Recently Prof. Reimers and the research teams at IfN invented, implemented and field-tested innovative solutions for the co-existence of broadcast and wireless broadband such as “Dynamic Broadcast”, “Tower Overlay over LTE-A+ (TOoL+)”, or “Redundancy on Demand”. TOoL+ has become the “uncle” of what 3GPP has now termed “Further evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (FeMBMS)” – a topic of his IBC presentation.
