EVENT DETAILS
This months video tech meetup will be hosted at Facebook! We have two exciting speakers so far coming off of some incredible launches.

Agenda:

Networking 6:00 to 6:30

Talk 1 - 6:30 to 6:45
Title: Keeping up with the Codecs
Presenter: Kevin Fuhrman, Tech Lead Multimedia Development, Disney+

Streaming is everywhere! Consumers now have unparalleled access to a huge variety of media from an ever increasing number of content providers. With so many options, users expect the highest quality experience possible powered by the latest technologies in encoding, content protection, & media delivery.
In this talk well discuss how traditional workflow approaches fall short, & how Disney Streaming Services adoption of reactive design principles are powering Disney+s ability to create state of the art media experience at scale that evolve at the speed of streaming.

Talk 2- 6:45 to 7:00
Title: HLS & DASH Multi Codec VOD Encoding & Packaging @ fuboTV
Presenter: Nick Krzemienski, Software Engineer, Video Encoding, fuboTV

Recently at fuboTV we took our VOD encoding in house rather than just paying a managed provider to handle. This is the story of how we enabled multi codec (h264/h265) codecs in production for both 4k VOD assets & 1080p. What was the process like to build out each variation. What were the random non compatible things that showed up from players & how we tackled them

Talk 3- 7:00 to 7:15
Title: Counting video viewers in real-time
Presenter: Jim Pastos, Software Engineer, Live Platform, Facebook
Having a real-time viewer count displayed on a video, particularly live broadcasts, enhances the viewing experience by creating a sense of presence. Videos become more social & viewers feel they are part of a larger group. In this talk we'll go over various ways on how this problem could be approached & what trade-offs are required at scale.
