2018-06-04   Media mini-summit on Friday October 27 in Prague

We are organizing a media mini-summit on Friday October 27 in Prague, co-located with the ELCE conference:

If you plan to attend, please let me know. It is open for all, but it is nice if we know beforehand who we can expect.

You can register here:

Name of the room in the Hilton Prague: Athens


General remarks: the given start/end times for the various topics are approximate since it is always hard to predict how long a discussion will take. The Request/Jobs API topic is placed last since I expect that that will take most of our time.

Let me know asap if there are problems with this schedule, or if new topics are requested.

8:00-9:00 Continental Breakfast served in the room
9:00-9:15 Introduction (Hans)


Status of the HDMI CEC kernel support (Hans)

Give a quick overview of the status: what has been merged, what is still pending, what is under development.


V4L2 Explicit Synchronization (Gustavo)

Quick overview and discussion of the API/direction we are going with fences.


Media development process: what works, what doesn't (Hans)

In the past 6 months or so we tried to improve the media development process. This is an overview of what we did and why we did it, what works and what doesn't. Feedback is very much appreciated. It is even more appreciated if people/companies would be willing to assign new developers to help improve the media subsystem!

10:30-11:00 Morning Break served in the room


Media kAPI and uAPI documentation (Mauro)

Give the current status of media API documentation and identify possible gaps and how to improve it.

12:00-13:30 Lunch


Request/jobs API (Alexandre)

Overview of the work based on the request API (proposed new name: jobs API), to hopefully converge to something that can be merged soon.

15:00-15:30 Afternoon Break served in the room


(or earlier if we're lucky): Wrap up (Hans)

Create action items (and who will take care of them) if needed. Summarize and conclude the day.
