About us

Demuxed is simply engineers talking about video technology. After years of chatting about video at the SF Video Technology Meetup, we decided it was time for an engineer-first event with quality technical talks about video. Our focus has traditionally been on content delivered over the web, but topics cover anything from encoding to playback and more!

Who's organizing this?

Most of the organization and work behind the scenes is done by folks from Mux (Demuxed came first ☝️) but none of this would be possible without amazing people from the meetup.

Every year we get a group together that's kind enough to do things like schedule planning, help brainstorm cool swag, and, most importantly, argue heatedly over which talk submissions should make the final cut.

Our Guiding Principles

  • No Marketing

    Speakers are selected based on their submission, not how much money their company paid; we will never, ever sell a speaking slot. Attendee information isn't for sale either, and that includes any sponsors.

  • Affordable

    We want anyone in the industry to be able to come, which means keeping tickets reasonably priced (thanks largely to our generous sponsors). We also offer free and discounted tickets to students and open source contributors, so please reach out if you're interested.

  • For Everyone

    Our community is dedicated to providing an inclusive, enjoyable experience for everyone in the video industry. In this pursuit, and in keeping with our love for reasonable standards, we adopted the Ada Initiative's Conference Code of Conduct

  • Community

    We strive for high quality, technical content, but just as importantly, Demuxed works to strengthen the community of video engineers and raise the industry status quo, both in the Bay and around the world.

After Party

When the dust has settled and the talks are done, Brightcove is sponsoring an after party! This year's festivities are downstairs in the same venue, so we can just head straight there to enjoy some food and drinks after the conference. The schedule is packed, so this is the perfect opportunity to unwind and catch up with all your fellow attendees.

The only thing you need to get in is your badge, so make sure to bring it with you. Plus ones are welcome to come join!
