Turning live events to virtual with Janus
Mon, Jul 13th
Up until recently, a good chunk of our business consisted in streaming live events (e.g., IETF meetings) via WebRTC, facilitating remote participation. Then the world changed, and so must we. This talk will describe some of the strategies we followed to host completely virtual events using Janus.
Lorenzo Miniero is the chairman and co-founder of Meetecho, a company providing consulting services on everything related to real-time multimedia, while also regularly providing streaming and remote participation services for well known events around the world (e.g., IETF and ACM). Lorenzo received his degree and Ph.D. at the Computer Science Department of the University of Napoli Federico II, where he started working on multimedia conferencing and met the colleagues with whom he co-founded Meetecho as an academic spin-off. He is an active contributor to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standardization activities, especially in the framework of real-time multimedia applications. He is most known as the author of the Janus WebRTC Server, an open source WebRTC server-side implementation.
