Abstract

With the UK and most of the world locked down around March 2020, suddenly video conferencing was used by a much wider audience and seems here to stay. From Handforth Parish Council to a lawyer saying, “I’m not a cat,” the world has since learned to embrace this technology at a before unprecedented scale.

We will look at the technology changes – networks, processing power, and software – over the last 15 years that made this possible, starting when the industry was largely confined to expensive meeting room solutions to today, where video is near-ubiquitous. And conclude with a look to the future: what can these past experiences tell us about what might come next?

Speaker

Dr Sam Jansen, CTO at Avos Ltd

Sam first moved to the UK when interning for Intel Research, who used to have an office in the William Gates building. Since later moving on from networking research to industry, Sam has over a decade of experience in video and business collaboration solutions: implementing video codecs, embedded video devices, and cross-platform software in this area. Since May 2022, he has been heading up technology at the new Cambridge start-up, Avos.
