Amplify editor Emily M. Reigart interviews Nagesh Puppala about Intel’s plans for the 2022 NAB Show. General manager for the Edge & Cloud Video Division at Intel, Puppala previews some of the new products, technologies, customers and partners Intel will be highlighting this spring and shares some business and technology trends he’s identified within the industry.
The 2022 NAB Show will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center April 23–27.
Nagesh Puppala and the Intel team have several speaking engagements planned during NAB Show:
- Unleashing Intelligent, Interactive and Immersive Visual Experiences in the Cloud and at the Edge
Where: Connect Inspiration Zone in the West Hall
When: Sunday, April 24, at 4–4:30 p.m.
What: Nagesh Puppala, general manager of the Edge & Cloud Video Division at Intel, will discuss how Intel’s innovations in video processing, AI, and edge computing unleash a whole new class of cloud native deployments in the fields of live/remote production, video compression/delivery, AI video enhancement and analytics, and immersive video.
Who: Nagesh Puppala, general manager of the Edge & Cloud Video Division, Intel
- Towards Ubiquitous AV1 Encoding with SVT-AV1 1.0
Where: Connect Innovation Zone in the West Hall
When: Monday, April 25, 4–4:30 p.m.
What: Discover the latest performance and features of the open source SVT-AV1 1.0 release. With support for use cases across VOD to live, this powerful and flexible AV1 software encoder is now available and ready for commercial deployments. In this session, Intel will share more about new presets optimized for low latency and real-time communications, as well as the advances in VOD shot-based encoding.
Who: Foued Ben Amara, software engineering manager, Intel
- Improving Video Quality with AI
Where: Intelligent Content Innovation Zone in the West Hall
When: Monday, April 25, 4:30–5 p.m.
What: Advances in AI continue to provide opportunities to increase video quality. In this session, Intel and partner iSize will showcase recent advances in AI-based super resolution and denoising that can be used to provide high quality video for the latest streaming services, and to improve video quality for noisy video sources such as analog cameras and user generated content.
Who: Raul Diaz, senior principal engineer, Intel; and Yiannis Andreopoulos, CTO, iSize
- Virtualized Live Video Production
Where: Create Innovation Zone in the North Hall
When: Tuesday, 1–1:30 p.m.
What: Live video production is transitioning from its historic dependence on inflexible, costly, proprietary standards and equipment to a more open model based on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware. Adopting an IP software-defined deployment model for video production enables the industry to benefit from innovations from the larger information and communications technology (ICT) arena. In doing so, solution architects for video processing realize advantages in flexibility, scalability, and cost by replacing proprietary infrastructure with general-purpose IT technologies.
Who: Gordon Kelly, solution architect, Intel
- 3D Holographic Broadcasts with Volumetric Video
Where: Connect Innovation Zone in the West Hall
When: Tuesday, 2–2:30 p.m.
What: The convergence and democratization of 3D human performance capture, 3D digital set design, virtual production, and real-world augmented experiences are enabling entirely new ways of creating and delivering content. This session will explore the use of 3D volumetric video in both live broadcasts and pre-recorded content to create more immersive experiences for everything from TV broadcasts to Instagram to virtual reality and the metaverse.
Who: Krithika Moorti, global head, Edge Video Division, Intel; and Ben Nunez, CEO, Evercoast
