In the past year, the video industry has seen significant growth of DASH deployments as well as its more mature implementations, including MPEG-DASH 2nd edition standard. This exponential growth makes Streaming Media’s recently published and completely vendor-driven 2015 MPEG-DASH Superguide a video industry must-read.

The Superguide opens with, “MPEG-DASH State of Affairs,” a DASH Industry Forum (DASH-IF) article written by Microsoft’s Iraj Sodagar, Principal, Multimedia Architect, and InterDigital’s Alex Giladi, Senior Manager, Video Software Architect. As the industry moves towards MPEG’s 3rd edition of DASH, Iraj and Alex discuss the technical developments of this year, DASH-IF’s recent activity and future work in MPEG-DASH beyond the 3rd edition.

Also, the two experts encourage anyone deploying or planning to deploy OTT streaming services and solutions to get involved with DASH-IF. The organization is responsible for promoting market adoption of the MPEG-DASH standard. A successful standard is a standard that is widely deployed by industry, and one that enables interoperability among different vendor’s services and solutions with no pain, as stated in their article.
