Featured Session At SM East: Understanding the Significance of HEVC/H.265

sm-west-arowsThe most recent video compression standard, HEVC / H.265, is expected to become the video standard of choice over the next decade. But how quickly will this adoption take place and what impact will it have on content owners and industry vendors? At the Streaming Media East show, taking place May 21-22 in NYC, we’ve got a session entitled “Understanding the Significance of HEVC/H.265“. The session will address what H.265 is, how it differs from previous generations of compression technology including H.264, key barriers to widespread adoption, and thoughts on when H.265 is likely to be implemented. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Jan Ozer, Principal, Doceo Publishing
  • Keith Wymbs, VP, Marketing, Elemental Technologies
  • Will Law, Principal Architect, Media Division, Akamai Technologies
  • Thomas Kramer, VP, Product Management, Rovi

And if you think you’ve got an interesting angle to discuss about HEVC, let me know. I may add one more person to the panel who can bring a different perspective on the adoption of HEVC.
