Månedens tema er: «Open Source in Broadcasting» med Kieran Kunhya.
Foredraget vil foregå på engelsk:

  For a variety of reasons broadcasters are not big users of open
  source - if anything many still have a viewpoint of Open Source that
  resembles views of the early 1990s. This presentation aims to
  explain what broadcasters around the world are doing in this area
  and what some of the difficulties are in an industry reliant on
  proprietary hardware and software as well as IPR-heavy. In
  particular it will look into the creation of the Open Broadcast
  Encoder (OBE), a professional television encoder running on
  commodity hardware which many Norwegian organisations have played a
  role in. Many of the deployments have been firsts for Open Source in
  broadcasting, not to mention software encoders, silencing many

Kieran has worked on a variety of Open Source projects in multimedia,
mainly on x264 and FFmpeg/libav, trying to make them suitable for use
in professional environments such as Blu-Ray, television transmission
and post-production to broadcaster file interchange. However, the
technical issues are only half of the puzzle - he also spends a lot of
time trying to explain Broadcasting to Open Source people and Open
Source to Broadcasters and has spoken at many events about this. He is
the creator of the Open Broadcast Encoder[3] project, which is a fully
open source broadcast encoder used to deliver a variety of channels
around the world from the most high profile channels to much smaller
channels, putting small players (e.g Frikanalen[4] in Norway) on a
similar playing field to the big players. He has worked on all the
major deployments of OBE.
