JW Player created the first embeddable digital video player and over a decade later we continue to create the future of video. We are excited to announce re[FRAME], our inaugural conference for video engineers.

re[FRAME] will bring together some of the brightest minds in the space, and will be a forum for engineers to share the challenges and technical solutions they have built for online video while stepping outside of the traditional upload-transcode-deliver workflow. re[FRAME] topics will be technical and practical with an emphasis on using machine learning and data signals to reshape the future of video.


Relevant & Technical – Video continues to be the fastest growing digital medium. re[FRAME] talks are focused on video technology for video engineers and are not geared to any specific software or vendor.

Curious & Forward – Asking questions and thinking about the future is encouraged. Every conversation is framed with the idea that problems of tomorrow are solved by understanding why, what, and how.

Free & Open – Engagement is fundamental to growing, sharing, and building an active community. Offering this conference gratis allows anyone from the industry to attend and help strengthen NYC as a hub for video technology. re[FRAME] is open and inclusive to the entire video community.
