Section Meeting

Edge Computing for the Media Industry

SMPTE Toronto November Section Meeting

Nov 23, 2021 07:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

The November virtual meeting of the SMPTE Toronto Section will provide an overview of Edge Computing for media. As geographically dispersed networks are designed for the media industry, the key question looms: How much compute should be implemented at the edge of the network and how much compute should be implemented at the core of the network (cloud or data center)? When making decisions around this subject, key considerations are latency, quality, reliability, bandwidth, and cost. This meeting presents use case examples and perspectives from key industry people. Examples of edge computing use cases for media are encoding, decoding, graphics rendering, signal processing, comms, and switching

The evening’s presenters will take us through some implementations and use cases their respective companies have undertaken.

Presenters will include:

Chris Lapp, Technical Solutions Architect, Media and Entertainment, Cisco

Michael Lally, Technical Solutions Architect, Media and Entertainment, Cisco

Clarence Hau, SVP, Standards, Policy & Advanced Engineering, NBCUniversal

Grant McGilvray, Engineering Architect, NBCUniversal Distribution Engineering Group

Paul Brown, Chief Technology Officer, Videon Labs
