AMSTERDAM – The emergence of MPEG Dash as a standard for streaming Internet video has reached a milestone of sorts as it is being tested by Google on Chrome in a limited program initiated earlier this month, says Will Law, Principal Architect, Media Cloud Engineering, Akamai, in this video interview at the IBC conference.

This is the first time that a major browser has supported Dash.

Law is an evangelist for the new standard as he serves as secretary of Dash Industry Forum.

MPEG Dash is big topic of discussion at the conference this year.  Tonight (Sunday) some 300 members of the Dash consortium are meeting and Beet.TV is covering.
