    Topic: Edge Computing for the Media Industry

    Date: Tuesday, November 23, 2021
    Zoom Webinar
    Arranged By:
    Jaime Caeiro, Ilya Doronin, Roy Folkman

    Sponsors: SMPTE Toronto Section 

    The November virtual meeting of the SMPTE Toronto Section will provide an overview on 'Edge Computing for the Media Industry'.  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.

    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

    All attendees must register using the link below. Upon registration a confirmation email will include the Go-To-Webinar link.
