With the current popularity of ECO in the Asia–Pacific (APAC), the Bitmovin team in APAC, led by Adrian Britton, expressed an interest in the energy-aware research initiatives conducted within the GAIA project in Austria. Following an introductory meeting between the APAC team and AAU on October 17, 2023, both teams decided to meet in person on November 21, 2023, to explore the topics further.
The meeting proved to be highly productive, centering around two recent research topics:
– VE-Match: Video Encoding Matching-Based Model in the Cloud and Edge (presented by Samira Afzal & Narges Mehran)
– Energy-aware Spatial and Temporal Resolution Selection for Per-Title (presented by Mohammad Ghasempour & Hadi Amirpour)
Many interesting Q&As appeared during each presentation due to customer and provider requirements and the future insight of climate-friendly video streaming in the Cloud and Edge. The fruitful discussions opened up avenues for future exploration in this dynamic field.
