ATHENA HTTP Adaptive Streaming - Quo Vadis

Video traffic on the Internet is constantly growing and networked multimedia applications consume a predominant share of the available Internet bandwidth. To enable a more efficient process of content delivery and networked multimedia services, video researchers worked together to develop the HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) technique. Since it's inception, adaptive streaming was standardized into two predominant techniques, MPEG Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (MPEG-DASH) and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), both of which are widely used for multimedia delivery in today’s networks.

To further develop the technologies behind adaptive streaming techniques, researcher's founded the ATHENA Christian Doppler (CD) Laboratory in early 2019. This webinar will cover some of the most innovative and impactful research that the ATHENA CD Lab yielded.

Join us as we highlight HAS-related research on:

Multimedia content provisioning (machine learning for video encoding)
Multimedia content delivery (support of edge processing and virtualized network functions for video networking)
Multimedia content consumption and end-to-end aspects (player-triggered segment retransmissions to improve video playout quality)
Novel QoE investigations (adaptive point cloud streaming)

The webinar will broadcast on Wednesday, August 4th @ 9 AM PT/ 6 PM CEST.
