Description: We’ve all seen what a single smart and engaging online video can do for brand reputation and sales, yet many video publishers have struggled to reach real success with their efforts. Many companies have even put off creating a formal video strategy.

It's time to make a transition. Instead of creating one-off projects, industry leaders populate their annual content marketing plans with several online videos—from product releases to exclusive customer content and even sponsored series. It's time to re-evaluate your online video strategy ... or even create one for the first time!

This workshop will focus on topics essential to online video publishers, including how to brand your videos throughout the production process and tips on leveraging distribution platforms like YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, and industry-specific platforms. You’ll also learn how to use analytics within these platforms to refine future campaigns. Attendees will leave with practical knowledge that they can apply to their content marketing plan.

Description: One of the most widely used tools for video encoding and deployment processes is FFmpeg, an open-source command line utility that can read and write just about any video, audio, or subtitle codec with just about any format, container, or protocol. Starting with core command-line parameters, you’ll learn how to read video files and output in various bitrates, codecs, and containers. The workshop then moves into more intermediate-level commands with map parameters and video filters. We also look at streaming VOD as Live with RTMP distribution to social media and custom ingest destinations.

Description: If you’re already familiar with the basics of FFmpeg operation, you’re ready to tackle more ambitious tasks with one of the most powerful compositing tools available. In this workshop, we explore composition of two video sources with text labels and placement, setting up multiple processes to output multiple bitrates for adaptive delivery, using the “tee muxer” to distribute one encoding process to several outputs, and accessing connected hardware (e.g. webcams, A/V capture devices) and networked hardware (e.g. IP cameras) as inputs to FFmpeg processes. Additionally, a diagnostic test will be made available for attendees of this advanced workshop.

Speaker(s):
, Streaming Media Engineer, Millicast, Inc.
Description: This workshop is designed for broadcast and streaming professionals who need to build real-time streaming solutions that support reliable, professional, high-quality live content with less than a second of end-to-end latency.

Flash is dead, and the streaming industry is still struggling to replace it. This 3-part workshop will show you how to use Web Real-Time Communications (WebRTC) and standards-based web technology to allows publishers of live content to reach all modern browsers and devices without the need for any plugin or custom player, reducing the latency from publisher to viewer to less than 500 milliseconds, globally, at-scale.

Part 1: The Past

The W3C and IETF are currently reviewing the proposed recommendation to make Web Real-Time Communications an official web standard, bringing audio and video communications to every internet connected device, everywhere. Part 1 will introduce the WebRTC framework that provides the building blocks from which users can seamlessly add real-time video to many use cases, including: broadcast, post-production, auctions, education, tele-health, enterprise, gaming, and more.

Part 2: The Present

WebRTC is massively deployed as a communications platform and powers video conferences and collaboration systems across all major browsers, both on desktop and mobile. Part 2 will show how you can create your own solution leveraging commercial products and open source projects, to build your own web native broadcaster and player, as well as capture NDI, SDI or HDMI through professional software and hardware encoders like OBS, BirdDog, Videon Edgecaster and Teradek Cube.

Part 3: The (Near) Future

The use of WebRTC has expanded beyond the initial core design to power video conferences and collaboration systems in web browsers, native apps and other ecosystems. Part 3 will focus on how this has led to the need for more advanced broadcast-quality features: Real-time AV1 encoding, Hardware acceleration, HDR, 10-bit & 4:4:4 colour, Surround Sound and True end-to-end encryption in WebRTC.
