The H.264 Convergence: Will Video Standards Finally Take Hold?

At the Streaming Media East show on Tuesday May 20th, we have a session entitled "The H.264 Convergence" that will detail how over the past year, more and more streaming media players are utilizing H.264 and providing support for the technology.

Adobe’s recent support for H.264 in their Flash player has sparked industry discussions amongst major broadcasters and online video producers about the role H.264 will play. This session will explain why H.264 is getting so much exposure, what recent announcements have put it into the spotlight, and whether it can really be the one codec that the entire industry can converge on. Attendees will also see real-world examples of sites and services that are utilizing H.264 today.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Eric Manchester, Manager Digital Media Distribution, Time Warner Cable
  • Kevin Towes, Product Manager, Flash Media Server, Adobe
  • Matt Smith, Video Architect, Yahoo!
  • Tim Napoleon, Chief Strategist, Media and Entertainment, Akamai
  • Greg Smith, CTO, Move Networks
