Streaming Forum 2013 is a new, cutting-edge conference for pioneers, practitioners and decision makers. Since 2006, the Streaming Media Europe Conference has played an integral part in driving the exponential growth in IP delivery of rich media. It continues to serve as a catalyst for cutting-edge developments in online video and audio across all sectors.

This years' conference will focus on the streaming media game-changers that will continue to drive industry to new heights in the coming years, with a special emphasis on the following topics:
  • Media & Entertainment
  • Corporate Communications
  • Education & Training
  • Sport
  • Live Event Webcasting
  • Encoding & Transcoding
  • Formats, Protocols, & Standards
  • Video Infrastructure
In this context, we will have a panel on "DASH and HEVC: New Standards Enabling Ultra-High Quality Video Services", also supported by the DASH Industry Forum.

The first versions of the DASH and HEVC standards have recently been approved and the first services will soon be deployed. Additionally, the DASH Industry Forum was established to provide interoperability guidelines for DASH-based services, recently provided DASH264 for community review, and is working towards guidelines for HEVC and beyond. The panel aims to identify issues and possible solutions for the successful deployment of DASH and HEVC from the content, service, and network providers' point of view as well as from device and equipment manufacturers.
