Event Recap: AOMedia Research Symposium, October 20-21, 2019, San Francisco

AOMedia kicked off its first Research Symposium in October, bringing together more than 100 attendees, representatives from member companies and researchers from leading universities. The packed 2-day program of stimulating presentations in sunny San Francisco.

According to a Cisco study, with global internet traffic expected to rise three-fold between 2017-2022, of which 82% will be video, AOMedia is focused on developing new formats that set the standard for video compression performance.

Adrian Grange, AOMedia’s Chair of the Video Codec Working Group, Google

Achieving improved performance has become more challenging with each codec generation, so AOMedia Research is seeking active collaboration with the academic community to develop new coding tools that deliver improved compression performance. This first symposium attracted contributions from many leading universities: Bristol University, Carnegie Mellon University, Hangzhou Normal University, Purdue University, New York University, University of Nantes, Stanford University, UCSB, USC, the University of Texas at Austin, Trinity College Dublin, and Yale University.
