Eric's Thoughts on Being a Member
The Streaming Video Alliance has provided me the opportunity to pursue and grow ideas and standards that have long been close to my heart with a nice mix of practical application and technical specifications. By being able to focus on real world use cases in the streaming media space alongside colleagues with similar challenges, we’re able to find the best solutions that marry the theoretical with the practical. The result is that we’re able to work toward industry adoption involving all participants in an ecosystem through collaboration and partnership of definition. Being part of that conversation is crucial to the ultimate end product we all output. The collaborative spirit, consistent evolution of ideas and partnership show up in the impact we can have with each new specification, white paper, or standard we release.
