The Metadata working group has recently finished with the document, “Metadata Landscape” and the chairs, Jens Loeffler (Disney Streaming Services) and Dr. Abdul Rehman (SSIMWAVE) , would like to hear from the membership in general, as well as the group’s members, on what the group should consider taking up next.
You don’t need to be a current member of the working group to suggest something, we’d like to hear your suggestion. Metadata’s mission as described on the SVA site is:
Streaming experiences require data to be associated with the content, from a basic title and description, to in-depth metadata describing the very detail of the content. It can also contain associated content, such as images, highlights, extras. It also defines content availability rights, user entitlements, and categories. With the television experience moving to streaming, either with D2C or IP delivery of traditional TV subscriptions, the importance and enhancements of metadata becomes more critical than ever. The Metadata Working Group will propose metadata definitions and enhancements to existing standards to provide better interoperability and scale for the streaming industry.
Networking and Transport Topic Interest
The Networking and Transport group is just about finished with the document, “5G and Edge Cloud for Streaming Video” and the chairs,Glenn Deen (Comcast-NBCUniversal) and Mike Hughes (Limelight) , would like to hear from the membership in general, as well as the group’s members, on what the group should consider taking up next.
You don’t need to be a current member of the working group to suggest something, we’d like to hear your suggestion. Networking & Transport’s mission as described on the SVA site is:
As online streaming video grows in popularity, increasing audience sizes will put more demands on network operators and content distributors. Massive live events and popular VOD content will require more capacity, better resiliency, and heightened operations. This content may also require potentially different delivery approaches (IP Multicast, UDP vs. TCP, and LTE broadcast) to provide the Quality of Experience (QoE) that viewers want. And such scaling must happen transparently, leveraging resources behind the scenes in a cost-
effective manner. In this working group, participating members focus on solving the challenges of the best broadcast approach, event planning, and implementation of the scale required to support rapidly increasing audience sizes.
