Come Debate The Future Of Video Codecs: VP9, HEVC and AV1

At the Streaming Media West show, taking place next week on Nov. 2/3, we’ve got a great session on how the upcoming support of HEVC on iOS is bringing new dynamics into the video codec world along with the expected impact of AV1 and VP9’s reach via 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 how content providers should approach having to support multiple video codecs in parallel to reach all devices. Confirmed speakers include:
