AV1, A Win For The Open Web: Demos by Google and Mozilla

At the Streaming Summit, taking place as part of the NAB Show New York on Oct. 17-18th, Jai Krishnan, Product Manager at Chrome and Nathan Egge, Video Codec Engineer at Mozilla will share a look at AV1, the royalty-free video codec finalized by the Alliance for Open Media earlier this year. AV1 offers a generational improvement in coding efficiency over any web codec, and comes backed by nearly 40 companies, including some of the largest in the internet, tech, and video industries.

Their talk will cover why Google and Mozilla invest in web codecs, the benefits of AV1, where the codec stands going into 2019, and demos of AV1 already available in browsers today as well as on different platforms and for different use cases. (session details)
