Streaming Video Alliance Blasts Into the Realms of Cyberspace for Quarterly Member Meeting
FREMONT, Calif., May 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Streaming Video Alliance (the Alliance), a global technical association developing solutions to address critical challenges in delivering a high-quality video experience at scale, convenes in the realms of cyberspace today for the Q2 Member Meeting. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this marks the Alliance's first completely virtual meeting. The four day event, which takes place today through Thursday, May 7, will feature numerous presentations, such as SSIMWAVE's Dr. Abdul Rehman on view-aware optimization, Datazoom's Diane Strutner on tracing events through streaming video, and IAB TechLab's Amit Shetty on the technical challenges of addressable advertising, a comprehensive line up of Working Group sessions, and a virtual happy hour.
"There is no other technology that is more prominent in this pandemic than streaming video. The COVID-19 crisis has thrust it into the global spotlight as both a required technology – virtual business communications, school lessons, telemedicine visits with health professionals, video calls with friends and family – and simultaneously as a means of entertainment and escapism for enjoying favorite TV shows and movies. At a time when so much of our global population is in social isolation, it is one of the technologies keeping us connected to each other," said Jason Thibeault, Executive Director at the Alliance. "From a technology perspective, this is a fascinating time where streaming video is being put to the ultimate test. What streaming organizations have been predicting could happen is actually happening now."
