“JW Player is dedicated to providing a viable and cost effective alternative to H.264/H.265 over HLS to deliver high quality video for users on constrained bandwidth devices,” said Madan.

JW Player, the world’s most popular video player and leading digital and mobile video solutions company, today announced Media Engineer Pooja Madan and Software Engineer Team Lead Nuno Pinge are scheduled to be featured speakers at Demuxed, an annual conference for video engineers held in Pooja Madan San Francisco on October 13.

The presentation, “DASHing into the Wild with VP9”, details JW Player's implementation of VP9 transcoding and delivery using MPEG-DASH. It will also feature architecture decisions, implementation details and recent results using the video compression technology.

“JW Player is dedicated to providing a viable and cost effective alternative to H.264/H.265 over HLS to deliver high quality video for users on constrained bandwidth devices” said Madan, an engineer with a decade of experience working with video compression, image processing and digital forensics products. “In this conversation we will outline our experiments with quality, encoding speed, bytes delivered and lower time to first frame.”

Today, more than two billion devices worldwide support the VP9 video codec in the HTML5 element. An open and royalty free video coding format developed by Google, VP9 codec technology shrinks the size of video files so each can be transported more efficiently. In fact, according to a recent Google / YouTube case study, VP9 improved user experience allowing video playback to start 15-80% faster, and enabling more users in bandwidth-constrained environments to watch higher quality video.

“For publishers the big win with VP9 is the ability to deliver better quality and higher resolution content for users under constrained bandwidth conditions such as mobile networks,” said Pinge, a mentor, engineer and architect with over 10 years of experience specializing in IoT, Analytics and Video delivery products at scale. “The choice of technology is being driven by the ever growing needs of our publishers and viewers. Ultimately VP9 will improve engagement and views.”

Pinge holds a BSc from Instituto Superior Técnico and speaks four languages. Madan holds Master of Science (MS), Electrical and Electronics Engineering from New York University.

The at 9:00AM in Ellation HQ located at 835 Market Street Ste. 700 San Francisco, CA. JW Player’s Pinge and Madan will begin their presentation at 3:00PM.
