What we're about

The Sydney Video Technology meetup is for anyone interested in the underlying technology behind video and video publishing: streaming, transcoding, codecs, advertising, playback, open standards, mobile, connected tv and more. We will focus on the engineering side and not the creative side, but creatives are welcome.

Why Generative AI won't end moviemaking

This talk debunks the hype that AI is going to end creativity and filmmaking using examples from the past and examining the difficult challenges it needs to overcome first.

Bhautik has nearly 25 years of experience in immersive tech, film, TV, games, machine-learning and consumer-facing tools for creativity, having previously worked at CSIRO, Industrial Light & Magic, Flickr and Adobe Research.

James Broberg - Founder & CEO at StreamShark
Emerging Trends in Virtual Event Production

Sponsorship for the evening will be provided by AWS
Stick around with Fastly for after event social drinks

We all find challenges in video, some are simple others very sophisticated we have some openings for 10-20 min talks in 2023 and encourage anyone to come share your experience to supportive audience.

Looking forward to seeing you all there, please cancel your spot if you can no longer make it.
