The Streaming Video Alliance has three primary objectives. First is education. Through whitepapers, ebooks, blogs, and other channels, the Alliance educates the industry on the critical technical challenges that need to be solved to deliver a broadcast-like, or better, experience through streaming. Second is collaboration. The Alliance provides a forum, both virtually and in-person, for industry players to come together and collaborate on solutions to the technical challenges of delivering streaming video consistently and reliably at scale. Third is definition. Through our collaborative forum, member companies create documentation such as best practices, guidelines, specifications, and functional requirements that offer a solution to the technical challenges facing the industry. These publications are made available freely to the public.
