Broadcast International, a provider of video management software and services for next-generation video IP networks, joined the DASH Promoters Group (DASH-PG), a new organisation comprised of technology leaders dedicated to driving the broad adoption of MPEG’s DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) specification (ISO/IEC 23009), which was ratified in November 2011.
DASH addresses the evolution of Internet video by defining a universal delivery format which provides the best possible video experience while dynamically adapting to changing network conditions as video streams to devices. Founded by Microsoft, Netflix and Qualcomm, DASH-PG is comprised of a cross section of industry leaders across the multimedia and video delivery ecosystem.
“Joining the DASH Promoters Group allows us to highlight the strength and flexibility of CodecSys as the industry is coalescing around MPEG DASH creating a singular standard for streaming protocols,” said Steve Jones, general manager at Broadcast International. “With a simple software module, we are able to showcase how we address the constantly changing IP video landscape to ensure our clients have the best and most relevant software technology to support evolving video formats and protocols.”
