Description

We're doing more and more things remotely, and will continue doing so.
There are multiple tools, open source and not, doing remote conferencing for people-to-people interactions.

However, there are few tools and libraries to do remote control of machines. And by machines, we speak about normal machines (think TeamViewer or VNC), Virtual Machines (think Citrix or Cloud Desktop), Cloud Gaming, Drones or Robots.

In all those use-cases, we need a high-quality, 0-latency video feed, and bidirectional input forwarding.

This is what we've done with the Kyber project, which provides a cross-platform application and SDK, to control any type of machines, independent of the hardware and the Operating System, using different video codecs tuned for the best latency. In addition to those high-bitrate video feed, we've developed the infrastructure to forward every type of inputs (Keyboard, Mouse, USB, Gamepads...) and virtually replug them on the distant machine.

I plan, during this talk to explain how it works and go into the technical details.
