6:00pm: Networking/Light Dinner (sponsored by IEEE SPS)
Like many streaming video enterprises, YouTube relies on a core pipeline of transcoding and video DSP which has evolved dramatically since YouTube was first established. This talk reviews some of the key aspects of the pipeline and highlights some recent developments in the treatment of partner content as well as 4K.
Anil Kokaram is a Tech Lead in the Transcoding Group at YouTube/Google, leading a group responsible for video quality. He is also a professor at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, and continues to supervise a small number of students at http://www.sigmedia.tv in the Department of Electrical Engineering. His main expertise is in the broad areas of DSP for video processing, Bayesian inference, and motion estimation. In 2007, he was awarded a Science and Engineering Academy Award for his work in video processing for post-production applications. He founded a company (GreenParrotPictures) producing video-enhancement software that was acquired by Google in 2011. He is currently an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology.
A joint event co-sponsored by Bay Area Multimedia Meetup.
