Real time streaming and video-based services require high quality and high speed video transcoding capability. Recently, AI powered applications are booming both in academia and industry to further enhance user experience. Integrating the software-based AI applications within the hardware-based framework of video encoders is a nontrivial task and developing an optimized and efficient solution makes it more challenging. Aupera offers a solution to address this need by building an integrated FPGA-based hardware and development video stack for AI-powered real-time applications.
The Football World Cup in summer 2018 was the largest sporting event streamed on the internet. This session examines the event through the experience of Akamai, a gobal CDN who supported 55 broadcasters worldwide and delivered record traffic for the event.
