The Next Generation Video Experiences

We have been improving video on three axis, More Pixels, Faster Pixels and Better Pixels. These three have defined image quality for 50 years! Where do we go from here? What are the implications for AR/VR and other video experiences? We need to build an eco-system to enable these new experiences. This talk will cover these topics and their implications to displays and file formats.


Ajit Ninan has a history in imaging and media that spans 25 years. His work at both startups and large companies were centered around building and standardizing video codecs and network protocols like 802.17. His projects range from display systems, laser light sources, HDR eco-systems, formats, and augmented reality (AR)/VR ecosystems. His work encompasses all aspects of imaging from display, optics, color, tone, and display mapping to computer vision algorithms. His recent accomplishments include Dolby Vision, building the first 4000 nits HDR display "Pulsar that was recognized by the AIS Lumiere award for pioneering HDR in Hollywood. With more than 300 patents in imaging, many of them centered around quantum dots; he helped drive the adoption of quantum dot TVs. He received the Society of Information Displays Best in Show award with Nanosys for the first QD monitor. He was also a key inventor and author of Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG)-XT Part 2. His passion for this work continues into AR/VR and immersive imaging. He recently was inducted as fellow to the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers.
