As Director of Encoding Technologies, Anne Aaron leads the team responsible for media processing and encoding at Netflix. They work on video, audio, images, and timed-text — from analysis to processing, encoding, packaging, and DRM. On the streaming side, we strive to deliver a compelling viewing experience for millions of Netflix members worldwide, no matter where, how, and what they watch. For the Netflix studio, we build media technologies that can improve content production. I work with a team of stunning colleagues who are passionate about the technology, our members, and the stories we share on Netflix.
In her previous role at Netflix, Anne led the Video Algorithms team. She actively recruited and grew a team of experts in cloud-based video coding and processing. As a team, we researched and deployed innovation in the video encoding space (per-title encoding, video quality assessment and perceptual metrics, shot-based encoding, HDR, next-generation codecs) that benefited Netflix members as well as impacted the rest of the industry.
