Presenters from Chrome and Firefox will share a look at AV1, the royalty-free video codec finalized by the Alliance for Open Media earlier this year. AV1 offers a generational improvement in coding efficiency over any web codec, and comes backed by nearly 40 companies, including some of the largest in the internet, tech, and video industries. This talk will cover why Google and Mozilla invest in web codecs, the benefits of AV1, where the codec stands going into 2019, and demos of AV1 already available in browsers today as well as on different platforms and for different use cases.
