Make your own video codec

Gisle Sælensminde

Half-day workshop - in English

How video compression algorithms like h.264 works is for most
developers looked upon as black magic, something that geniouses provides
to the world so that mere mortals can use them through libraries.

The point of this workshop is to demonstrate that this image is false, and
that video compression is not as hard as you may think. In fact, the core principles
can be explained in not so long time. In this workshop we will do
just that, and to implement a simple video codec based on those principles.

Primarily for: Developers

Participant requirements: Laptop with development tools for your favourite programming language. Examples will be given in python and C.
