(8:30) Breakfast

(9:00) Keynote (slides)

  • HTTP Adaptive Streaming in Practice
    Mark Watson (Netflix)

    Abstract: This talk will give an overview of Netflix’s large scale HTTP adaptive streaming system, discuss some of the reasons why we chose this technology and introduce some of the challenges we face in moving to a standards-based solution. I’ll also discuss a general model of the “adaptivity” problem and highlight some areas for future research into adaptation algorithms.

    Bio: Mark Watson is a senior member of the engineering team at Netflix, focusing on adaptive streaming system architecture, streaming quality and standardization. He previously held the position of Director of Research at Digital Fountain, working on internet video delivery solutions and a Principal Engineer position at Qualcomm. He is a significant contributor to the current MPEG DASH adaptive streaming standard as well as numerous other standards for media delivery over IP networks.
