Webinar: Video Codecs in 2021 and Beyond with Jan Ozer

I was honored to present a free webinar entitled Video Codecs in 2021 and Beyond with Muvi on April 8, 2021. The slides and recording are below.

Here’s the description.

There has never been a time where so many video codecs were available (or soon to be available) for video producers. From MPEG, we have AVC (H.264), HEVC (H.265), VVC (H.266), EVC, and LCEVC. From the open-source community, we have VP9 and AV1.

This webinar will discuss:

  • The key value proposition for the three new MPEG codecs (VVC, EVC, and LCEVC)
  • Royalty costs
  • Where these codecs play and when they will play
  • Key codec functions (live contribution, live transcoding, low-latency, VOD, HDR) and codec availability within these sub-markets.
  • Factors to consider when projecting codec adoption.

Attendees will learn which codecs are likely to stay or become relevant to their business, what they will cost to deploy, and how to evaluate their availability and utility.
