Hello all! I'm traveling to Norway this week to give a few talks and a workshop on online video, all sponsored by the Norwegian Unix Users Group. The workshop is likely to cover technical details of the new AV1 codec (and free codecs in general), while the talks are intended more as a free codec tea party.

Talks and meetups: "Fighting for free video - technical tactics and war stories from the FOSS audio and video codec frontier"

The talks are free and open to the public.

Workshop: "Audio and video format workshop with Xiphmont"

  • Wednesday April 24 at 10:00am at Cisco

The workshop is open to interested professionals, and I expect it to be more technical. Please contact NUUG (information in the links above) if you wish to attend.

Do come!

My first technical writing regarding the new AV1 codec is up at Xiph.Org. We've been working on AV1, heads-down, for a long time and my writing took a hiatus for almost that entire period. Now that it's out, it's time to continue the technology pages that I started with Daala.

"AV1 is a new general-purpose video codec developed by the Alliance for Open Media. The alliance began development of this new codec using Google's VPX codecs, Cisco's Thor codec, and Mozilla's/Xiph.Org's Daala codec as starting point. AV1 leapfrogs the performance of VP9 and HEVC, making it a next-next-generation codec. The AV1 format is and will always be royalty-free with a permissive FOSS license."
