LAS VEGAS – MPEG-DASH, an adaptive bitrate streaming technology that enables high-quality streaming via the Internet, received support from industry leaders such as Adobe, Microsoft and Qualcomm  at the DASH Industry Forum at NAB 2013. There, Beet.TV spoke with seven industry leaders for their take on what MPEG-DASH is doing for the industry and why they support it.

“There have been other proprietary protocols out there for streaming video,” says Fatih Ulupinar, principal systems engineer at Qualcomm. “DASH is in place to unify all these proprietary protocols and a place where all the other companies can gather around and have a uniform platform where all the video can be streamed over Internet.”

At the event, Beet.TV spoke with: Jens Loeffler of Adobe, Andrew Grant of Dolby, Geir Skaaden of DTS, Fabio Murra of Ericsson, John Deutscher of Microsoft, Fatih Ulupinar of Qualcomm and Steve Christian of Verimatrix.
