AMSTERDAM — Ratified in April, MPEG Dash, the first international standard for delivering segmented media to digital devices, is getting considerable support from industry leaders including Akamai, Adobe, Microsoft and others, and is being quickly adopted in Europe where its use is mandated by regulation, says Will Law, Principal Architect, Cloud Media Engineering at Akamai in this interview with Beet.TV

Law is secretary of the Dash Industry Forum, the principal industry trade group for the new standard.  He explains the opportunities and present issues around the adoption of Dash. 

This is one of our reports on the emergence of Dash, which we found to be one of the most compelling developments coming out of the IBC show.
