The MPEG-DASH standard has raised a huge momentum within both industry and academia. The DASH-IF provides – among others – interoperability guidelines and test vectors and closes the gap enabling interoperable deployments. In recent years, we have seen a tremendous amount of research papers addressing various issues in and around DASH and, thus, the DASH-IF establishes an academic track to:
- identify research communities working in the area of DASH
- create awareness of DASH-IF material and promote it within the academic community, and
- solicit research within and collect results from the academic community
For academics who want to join the DASH-IF Academic Track, please subscribe to the public email reflector firstname.lastname@example.org via https://lists.aau.at/mailman/listinfo/dashifat.
Everyone is welcome - let's do something! For any comments or questions, please let me know.
Another related activity was the IEEE ICME 2016 Bitmovin Grand Challenge on DASH which is summarized below. We'd like to thank all authors who have submitted their work to the grand challenge and we'd like to congratulate the winner team!
