Want to learn more about the Opus codec and why it is so important? As I mentioned at the end of my last post about why Opus matters, there will be a special presentation about Opus as part of the IETF 87 Technical Plenary happening in about 2 hours starting at around 17:45-18:00 in Berlin, Germany (Central European Summer Time, UTC+2, 6 hours off of US Eastern time).
There are three options for watching and participating live:
- using a WebRTC-capable browser (latest editions of Chrome and Firefox) and connecting to: http://www.meetecho.com/ietf87/tech_plenary
- listening to the audio stream at for either Potsdam 1 or Potsdam 3 (the plenary is in the combined room and I don't know which stream will be used)
- watching a video live stream at: https://new.livestream.com/internetsociety/ietf87techplenary
The technical plenary begins at 17:40 but there are some other reports before the Opus section. The agenda can be found online and includes:
1. IAB Chair Report
2. IRTF Chair Report
3. RSE and RSOC Chair Report
4. Technical Topic: Opus Codec
a. Introduction5. Open Mic
b. Overview of Opus
d. History of Opus in the IETF
e. Opus Deployment Panel
f. Future Work
I suspect that the Opus session will begin closer to 18:00 local time, but you can tune in around 17:40 to see the start of the session.
It should be quite an interesting session!
