Get The Latest Info On DASH, HLS, and MPEG-CMAF at #smwest Show

sm-west-arowsAt the Streaming Media West show, [taking place November 1-2 in Huntington Beach, CA] you will hear the latest updates on DASH, HLS, and MPEG-CMAF. A lot of recent changes are going on in the area of online streaming formats. Apple announced at WWDC 2016 the support of fragmented MP4, a key feature of CMAF, and others have demonstrated its usage on all major browser platforms. Video players now support HLS in HTML5 via re-multiplexing in JavaScript, so that HLS can be played using the HTML Media Source Extensions.

In parallel, MPEG-DASH got a lot of traction for DRM-protected premium content, as all major Web browsers support now the HTML5 Encrypted Media Extensions. This panel will provide an overview about MPEG-CMAF, and discuss whether it is an opportunity to actually harmonize deployments that currently have to support both (and separate from each) DASH and HLS. It will also discuss potential threats on existing deployments having its clear focus on MPEG-DASH and DASH-IF. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Stefan Lederer, CEO, Bitmovin
  • Will Law, Chief Architect, Media Cloud Engineering, Akamai
  • Iraj Sodagar, Multimedia Architect, Microsoft
  • Jeff Tapper, SVP, Engineering, Viacom
  • Rustam Khashimkhodjaev, VIPER Player Platform Engineering, Comcast
