About this talk

In the four years since its initial release, AV1 has become an industry buzzword. Conceived by the Alliance for Open Media as a successor to VP9, AV1 is a royalty-free video coding format geared towards streaming and other internet applications. Benefiting from very good efficiency of compression and bandwidth usage, AV1 has achieved traction with some world-leading streamers – including Netflix and YouTube – although adoption elsewhere has been more mixed. In this webinar we will look at the benefits of AV1 and its prospects in media streaming and elsewhere, with discussion of aspects including: - Efficiency and performance improvements when compared to earlier formats, including VP9 and HEVC - Ability of AV1 to send streams cheaper and faster, and the impact this is having on the capacity of streaming services - Limitations of AV1 and how these might be addressed in future iterations of the format - Notable commercial implementations of AV1, and the general outlook for the format in streaming worldwide - The features that are likely to be required of future coding formats for streaming.
