This session will explore the leading edge in the world of video delivery, an open standard, supported by the industry’s biggest players, named MPEG-DASH and its companion project dash.js. While we are constantly building DASH players for platforms including Desktop, Browser, Flash, Connected TVs and Mobile Devices, dash.js offers the promise of high-quality streams in a JavaScript client.

As the lead architect on the dash.js project, the speaker has intimate knowledge of the inner workings of this project, and he is actively collaborating with contributors from Microsoft, Google and others.

The technology for dash.js is new, and it’s not yet supported on every device, but we are working with many of the key players to make it a reality and the list of supported devices grows daily. So join us while weexplore the DASH standard, discuss how dash players are built, dig through the dash.js codebase, and see dash playing on mobile devices.
