As a culmination of all the positive momentum that has been going on the past few years all the important Open Video players will be gathering at NYU’s law center for the first of hopefully many Open Video Conferences on June 19th.
The interesting part of this conference is it isn’t exclusively a tech conference. According to their website:
Open Video is a broad-based movement of video creators, technologists, academics, filmmakers, entrepreneurs, activists, remixers, and many others. When most folks think of “open,” they think of open source and open codecs. They’re right—but there’s much more to Open Video. Open Video is the growing movement for transparency, interoperability, and further decentralization in online video. These qualities provide more fertile ground for independent producers, bottom-up innovation, and greater protection for free speech online.
If we have any hopes of success in bringing the general public an understanding of our views on the importance of openness and freedom, forming a larger community with like minded content creators is the next logical step and another piece of the puzzle.ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]
