MPEG-DASH Training Course by TONEX, MPEG DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP)

MPEG-DASH training, or MPEG DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP)  is an ISO Standard, MPEG-DASH (ISO/IEC 23009-1), using HTTP streaming delivering video with enhanced mechanisms for encoding and delivery of OTT (Over-The-Top), considering bandwidth, CPU processing power, CPU utilization and buffer status. Adaptive streaming technologies could change streams as needed  to ensure continuous playback or to improve the experience. MPEG community developed MPEG-DASH specification with participation from many experts and with collaboration from Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP).

TONEX MPEG-DASH training course provides a comprehensive technical overview of MPEG-DASH feature, magic technology, benefits, architecture, and components.

Learn about MPEG-DASH key concepts and topics such as:
  • OTT (Over The Top) delivery of webTV
  • WebTV services
  • Multicast streamed IPTV
  • Adaptive bitrate systems
  • MPEG-DASH services and profiles
  • Adaptive HTTP Streaming
  • HTML5 media Source Extension
