DT102. Transition to HEVC/VP9/AV1 with Multi-Codec Streaming

– 11:45AM – 12:05PM –

Video streaming is in transition towards the next generation of video codecs, offering to double the quality while lowering the required bandwidth. As the successor crown to the ubiquitous AVC/H.264 is still up for grabs, major content providers and device manufacturers are throwing their weights behind competing formats – HEVC/VP9/AV1 – leading to market fragmentation, specifically within web environments. To deal with this challenge, OTT services need to support multiple codecs in an efficient way. In this presentation, we will discuss how to evaluate the benefits and the tradeoffs of embracing these next generation compression technologies in your media workflow.

Panel: The Future Of Video Codecs: VP9, HEVC and AV1

– 3:15PM – 4:00PM –

With the release of AV1 and support for HEVC in HLS, new dynamics are unfolding in the video codec world. In the meantime, VP9 is still gaining popularity among content providers, especially for Web browsers and Android devices. This panel will discuss what is the status of the different video codecs today, what are benefits and problems, and how this will change in the future. It will also discuss the question if the industry is getting into a codec war again, where content providers will have to support multiple video codecs in parallel to reach all devices.
