The opportunity

A key attribute of the Unity Engine is the ease with which developers can build content for a variety of target platforms. Most experiences also include media—audio and/or video. Ensuring a seamless integration on each target platform is the mission of the Media team, a small but growing team with a large problem space. While we maintain what has taken years to build, we have also embarked on a renewal of our tech stack to enable extensibility and offer our users the benefit of a cohesive and open framework. Join us on this journey!
