9th FOKUS Media Web Symposium

And Still Diving Deeper

We plan to organize the next FOKUS Media Web Symposium in Berlin in May 2021.

Since 2010, the FOKUS Media Web Symposium has developed into an expert meeting for media tech professionals, welcoming year by year around 200+ participants from all over the globe. In view of the current situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the associated uncertainties and travel restrictions, we and the event partners cannot guarantee a program that would meet our high expectations.

The conference, tutorials and workshops will cover deep insights in internet delivered media, discussing the newest developments in media meets AI, media meets 5G and media meets scale. In between, coffee breaks and lunch offer the opportunity to network and to see the demos and exhibits of Fraunhofer FOKUS and MWS event partners.

The symposium will consist of interactive discussions and deep dives on several enabler technologies including:

Artificial Intelligence for Media:

Per-Title and Content-Aware Encoding, Next gen Media codecs, object recognition and classification, content analytics and metadata

Advanced Streaming Technologies:

DASH, HLS, WAVE, SAND, DVB-I, Low Latency Streaming, HbbTV, Media Delivery in 5G, broadcast/multicast/hybrid delivery, Video Player Tech, DRM, Quality of Experience

Media Applications and Services:
