PVT #3 : A React-based MSE player, CMAF demystified and Roland Garros 360°

Thanks to all of those who came out to our February edition of Paris Video Tech!

This third event was hosted by France Télévisions in their impressive screening room; it was our largest event to date and a real pleasure to gather and discuss in such a WOW environment!

Not to be outdone by the surroundings, we had great lineup of talks that spanned from player tech to standardisation insights to innovation in 360° video.

First up, the M6Web dev team presented the latest iteration of their MSE player based on React and Redux, with the ability to easily leverage multiple media engines, and the associated development/testing workflow. Next came Cyril Concolato (Telecom Paris Tech, GPAC and CMAF co-chair @ MPEG), who gave us a crash course in CMAF’s key concepts, its different profiles and delivery modes, and the standardization perspectives around this format that aims to streamline video workflows.

Finally, the France Télévisions innovation team presented us their iterative work on 360° video. Working on 360 since Roland Garros 2015, the team explained how far they have come in a very short time and how they anticipate to push the technology envelop further for the next edition this summer. And on a humorous note, they also shared some of the trials and tribulations inherent to innovation… (hint: mummified cameras!)

Thanks again to all of our speakers for your many insights and quality talks. We also give a special thanks to the France Télévisions team and especially to Raphaël Goldwaser for heading the organization and taking care of the live streaming!
