Video Engineering Summit

Video compression and related technologies are the bedrock of the online video industry, and they’ve always been the heart of Streaming Media, so we decided it’s time to give it its own summit. The Video Engineering Summit is for the hardcore video engineers, the ones who are really pushing the boundaries of video quality and compression efficiency. It’s a deep dive into encoding and transcoding, packaging and delivery, player and UI development, and formats, protocols, and standards. If you’re looking for deep dives into HEVC, VP9, AV1, DASH, CMAF, WebRTC, video optimization, or perceptual quality, you’ve come to the right place. Our expert speakers will help you take your video to the next level.

Topics to be covered will include:

  • Optimizing HEVC and H.264 Encoding Quality
  • Beyond MPEG and AOM: Open-Source and Proprietary Protocols
  • How CMAF Can Simplify Streaming
  • IMF: One Format to Rule Them All or Just One More Format?
