Advanced MPEG-DASH – Fraunhofer HHI

Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP DASH [1] is an emerging standard of MPEG, which has raised the interest of the market and is envisioned to be deployed and widely used in the upcoming years. Over the last years, there has been a change in the paradigm of audio/video streaming techniques. Since audio/video streaming is real time streaming, audio/video was typically transported over RTP/UDP. However, the tremendous success of streaming proprietary solutions based on HTTP/TCP has shown that the assumption that TCP based solutions were not adequate for audio/video streaming services was not correct. In fact HTTP streaming has shown to be very valuable for streaming services in many aspects, provided that the increased latency is acceptable.
