Over-the-Top Content Delivery: State of the Art and Challenges Ahead at ICME 2015

As stated in my MPEG report from Warsaw I attended ICME'15 in Torino to give a tutorial -- together with Ali Begen -- about over-the-top content delivery. The slides are available as usual and embedded here...

If you have any questions or comments, please let us know. The goal of this tutorial is to give an overview about MPEG-DASH and also selected informative aspects (e.g., workflows, adaptation, quality, evaluation) not covered in the standard. However, it should not be seen as a tutorial on the standard as many approaches presented here can be also applied on other formats although MPEG-DASH seems to be the most promising from those available. During the tutorial we ran into interesting questions and discussions with the audience and I could also show some live demos from bitmovin using bitcodin and bitdash. Attendees were impressed about the maturity of the technology behind MPEG-DASH and how research results find their way into actual products available on the market.

If you're interested now, I'll give a similar tutorial -- with Tobias HoƟfeld -- about "Adaptive Media Streaming and Quality of Experience Evaluations using Crowdsourcing" during ITC27 (Sep 7, 2015, Ghent, Belgium) and bitmovin will be at IBC2015 in Amsterdam.
