Content is at the heart of the online video industry. But owners and distributors are faced with constant challenges regarding the optimization of that content for delivery and consumption to a multitude of different devices, requiring them to answer such questions as:
- “What are the optimal bitrates for encoding to different device types?”
- “How do I protect my content from theft?”
- “How do I best integrate different content services (like Closed Captioning) into my workflow?
Whether live or on-demand, the Streaming Video Alliance actively seeks to find solutions to these challenges and provide guidelines, specifications, and functional requirements that can help content owners and distributors produce content which meets the demands of their audiences wherever they are.
