Ozer to Present on x265 Encoding and Packaging at Mile-High Video

You can download the presentation handout here (download). I’ll add the video once it becomes available. 

I’m thrilled to speak at Mile-High Video in Denver, which runs from May 7 – 10 2023. My presentation is on Sunday, May 7, entitled, “Encoding and Packaging x265/HDR with FFmpeg, Bento4 and mp4box.” The description is, “this introductory session will cover the basics of producing x265 with FFmpeg, including a look at key quality/performance tradeoff configurations like presets. Then it will cover how to produce various 10-bit HDR outputs and package for HLS, DASH, and CMAF with FFmpeg, Bento4, and mp4box.

Beyond my presentation, the program is stacked with industry luminaries and thought leaders from various publishers and technology providers speaking on intensely relevant topics like multiple CDN switching, video quality measurement, super-resolution encoding, AI-based transcoding, content-aware title encoding, and low latency delivery. Speakers are all in the process of integrating these technologies into their product and service offerings and delivering them to viewers; it will be a blast to hear their challenges and achievements.

If you’re a streaming professional looking to leverage these new technologies and concepts, this is a conference that you shouldn’t miss. The conference costs $549 (until 4/15) and $649 afterward. Between what you’ll learn and who you’ll meet, it’s a bargain. Here’s a link to the registration page.
