Membrane Framework - the true story of handling multimedia in Elixir

Audience: Intermediate

Media processing has never been a piece of cake - a large amount of data, tons of different formats, protocols and standards, growing latency and quality requirements. In this talk, we’ll introduce you to the world of media streaming via Membrane Framework - our solution for dealing with multimedia without pain. The framework provides a set of so-called elements, which are composable blocks implementing different multimedia processing operations. The talk will be based on the real use cases of the framework and will explain - what are use cases for such a framework - what are the benefits of using such a framework in comparison to other solutions, - what is the roadmap for the framework, especially in terms of supporting WebRTC.
