Insights into the future of media technologies

News from June 18, 2024

The 11th FOKUS Media Web Symposium (MWS), held in Berlin from June 11 to 12, was the meeting place for anyone interested in media technologies and applications. 230 participants from 21 countries participated in the conference, workshops, and tutorials. 

In addition to insights into the world of internet-based media, the presentations and discussions focused on economic and technical aspects. An exhibition accompanied the conference. At the 17 exhibits, participants could experience live the implementation of the latest research results in practical applications. For example, the metaverse could be explored with VR glasses.

A special highlight was the keynote speech by Edip Saliba, Data&AI Lead, Microsoft, on the topic of "GenAI: Game or Game-Changer for Media?", in which he gave an insight into the latest developments in generative artificial intelligence in the media sector.

The FOKUS Media Web Symposium was accompanied by the Media Web Week, during which the "dash.js face-to-face meeting", "CCSUBS meet-up" and the "DASH Industry Forum" took place with participants from industry and research.

The FOKUS Media Web Symposium (MWS) has once again established itself as a highlight in the media industry's calendar of events. We are already looking forward to next year and further exciting developments in media technologies.
