Quick reminder to send your speaking proposal for FOSDEM 2019 (Feb 2nd). We will be closing the agenda by early December.
Video has gone mainstream, and technologies to handle media assets, streams, workflows and apps at scale are now critical for many operations both hobby and commercial. Submit a speaking session and share your knowledge with the community at FOSDEM! We want to learn about open standards, software or hardware projects that deal with media.
We're looking for sessions on software or hardware spanning from building audio / video applications, through open standards, formats, codecs, media analytics and search, AI for creating or analyzing media, IPTV, Broadcasting and Radio practices - anything media is welcome!
This year, the Open Media devroom will take place on: Saturday, February 2nd, 2019.
About theFOSDEMOpen Media devroom
A lot of free and open source projects are used in the media business, as well in the broadcast industry as in the Web streaming. There are seldom events where project members are able to share and promote their projects, and FOSDEM is a very good place for such discussions and presentations. The Open Media room has already been organised at FOSDEM for the last four years, with a strong attendance and talks of great quality. We intend to continue the work to make it even greater. If you're interested in video, image or audio technologies, and the breadth of available open source technologies and communities for media - the Open Media Room is for you!
