Facebook Adds Heft to AV1 Video Codec Group

Adding another big name to those that are getting behind the emerging AV1 video codec, Facebook has joined the Alliance for Open Media (AOMedia) as a founding member and has secured a spot on the organization’s board.

Other companies that are on that level at the organization include ARM, Cisco Systems, Google, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Mozilla, Netflix and nVidia.

Facebook is joining the org and gaining influence on the direction of the AV1 standard as video becomes an increasingly vital component of the social media giant’s business strategy.
