The Streaming Video Alliance’s primary focus is on developing best practices, guidelines, technical specifications, and functional requirements that address critical challenges in the online video industry. This technical work is arranged according to Topic Area and then implemented through specific Working Groups.
The Topic Areas represent broad industry-level subjects that encompass the components involved in the online video value chain. The Alliance tackles each of these Topic Areas through educational programs (i.e., public and private webinars), guest speakers at face-to-face meetings, and individual member projects (that can eventually become Working Groups).
The Working Groups are focused on producing guidelines, specifications, best practices, and other documentation addressing specific industry challenges stemming from the topic areas.
