Lots of announcements this week! After welcoming Robert Gribnau as our Chief Commercial Officer on Wednesday, we are today happy to let you know that Streamroot has launched a brand new tech initiative in our hometown: the Paris Video Tech meetup.
Paris has a flourishing video tech community yet has had relatively few opportunities for project leaders and developers to come together, discuss and learn more about the various aspects of the online video workflow. Based on the thriving communities that have formed in San Francisco and many other cities, we are launching Paris Video Tech as a meeting place to bring together engineers and enthusiasts to talk encoding, video players, analytics, VR and lots of other exciting video technologies.
Our first event will take place on Wednesday, June 22 at 6:30pm at Dailymotion’s office in the 17th arrondissement (140 Boulevard Malesherbes). This first edition will feature an awesome lineup, with talks from broadcasters Dailymotion and Afrostream, and of course yours truly ;).
And here’s rundown of next week’s program:
6:30 Meet & greet with pizza
7:00 Meetup intro & presentations
Talk 2: ABR Algorithms, How they Work and How to Optimize your Stack with Nikolay and I, who recently presented a similar topic at Streaming Media East.
8:30 Cocktail and convos with drinks offered by Dailymotion
Thanks again to Dailymotion for hosting this first event and supplying the grub! If you aren’t able to make it next Wednesday, good news: the presentations will be streamed LIVE on Dailymotion and available after the event as well. Check back soon for more updates!
PS: We’re always looking for speakers and interesting talks for future meetups, so give us a holler if you have ideas…
