How To Make Codec Choices When Platform Support Is Unknown

Gone are the days where H.264 covered all devices and platforms. Today, 1080p is required for mobile devices, with 4K HDR content increasing to the TV, and not far over the horizon for even advanced phones with OLED displays. This means video distributors must deliver the same quality and experience across all devices which requires them to navigate multiple codecs and video standards.

At the Streaming Summit, taking place April 8-9, at the NAB Show, this panel will discuss how an OTT service can maximize their technology investment while providing the best consumer experience possible when it comes to the video codecs they support. Considerations such as playback support on the most popular consumer devices, transcoder integration, operational performance, and codec efficiency, will be covered. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Mark Donnigan, VP, Marketing, Beamr
  • Chris Fehring, Manager, Solutions Architecture, Pac-12 Networks
  • Pankaj Sethi, Engineering Manager, Facebook
  • Stefan Lietsch, CTO, Zattoo
  • Dan Pisarski, VP, Engineering, LiveU
