We cordially invite you to join the Long Night of Research / Lange Nacht der Forschung at the University of Klagenfurt on May 20, 2022, 4pm-11pm.
ATHENA will be present with two booths as follows.
#1: L70: How does video streaming work! (Lakeside Park, B12b.1.1)
More than 60% of the internet data volume is video content consumed via streaming services like YouTube, Netflix, or Flimmit. We show how video streaming services work. It is essential that the quality of the videos is played back as optimally as possible on various end devices. With us, you can gain practical experience and get to know differences in the quality of perception. In particular, we will show an animation video of how video streaming actually works, and visitors will be able to experience videos of different qualities and run some exciting experiments.
#2: U25: How to make video streaming faster and better! (Main University Building; jointly with Bitmovin)
Bitmovin, founded by graduates and employees of the University of Klagenfurt, is a global leader in online video technology. The aim is to develop new technologies that will improve the video streaming experience in the future, for example, through smooth image quality. We will show you the latest achievements from ATHENA and how video streaming can become even more innovative in the future.
