The 2012 Streaming Media Game Changers : DASH is number 1

The 2012 Streaming Media Game Changers : DASH is number 1 | C.S Care | Scoop.it

The next game changer for DASH, which is currently dominated by fragmented MP4 (fMP4) encoding and segmentation techniques, will be inclusion of MPEG-2 Transport Stream. Work is under way to address this issue so that Apple can join the DASH bandwagon without giving up its massive established HLS userbase.

 

While fMP4 and HLS are worlds apart in their approach to fragmented HTTP delivery, there's no reason to think that the two cannot co-exist within the DASH standard, in much the same way that MPEG-2, H.264, and VC-1 co-exist in the Blu-ray Disc standard.

 

One company in the space just might be able to pull Apple in the direction of complete industry consolidation around DASH: Netflix.

[...]

Still, with the advent of MPEG DASH and generic HTTP servers offering "plain vanilla" content serving, the industry as a whole may well see other premium content owners attempting to create their own internal CDNs -- at least for a period of time.

Infographic: Flash Still Bests HTML5 by Most Measures

Infographic: Flash Still Bests HTML5 by Most Measures | C.S Care | Scoop.it

It's Apple versus Adobe in a winner-take-all battle for multimedia supremacy on your smartphone, tablet, and personal computer. That's been the narrative since Steve Jobs famously dissed Adobe's Flash platform as "a closed system" back in 2010 and hitched Apple's star to the HTML5 multimedia standard for Web browsers.

 

Several years after that big break, who's winning? One More Level details the horse race through the prism of mobile and social gaming in the infographic below—and it turns out that Flash maintains a pretty big edge over HTML5 by most metrics, but that HTML5 momentum appears to be growing.

QDASH: A QoE-aware DASH system (Academic paper)

QDASH: A QoE-aware DASH system (Academic paper) | C.S Care | Scoop.it

Dynamic Adaptation Streaming over HTTP (DASH) enhances the Quality of Experience (QoE) for users by auto-matically switching quality levels according to network conditions. Various adaptation schemes have been proposed toselect the most suitable quality level during video playback. Adaptation schemes are currently based on the measured TCP throughput received by the video player. Althoughvideo buffer can mitigate throughput fluctuations, it does not take into account the effect of the transition of quality levels on the QoE.


In this paper, we propose a QoE-aware DASH system(or QDASH) to improve the user-perceived quality of videowatching. We integrate available bandwidth measurement into the video data probes with a measurement proxy archi-tecture. We have found that our available bandwidth measurement method facilitates the selection of video quality levels. Moreover, we assess the QoE of the quality transitions by carrying out subjective experiments. Our results show that users prefer a gradual quality change between the best and worst quality levels, instead of an abrupt switching. Hence, we propose a QoE-aware quality adaptation algorithm for DASH based on our findings. Finally, we integrate both network measurement and the QoE-aware quality adaptation into a comprehensive DASH system.

A Curated Selection of Data Visualization Charts and Infographics: The Information Is Beautiful Awards | C.S Care | Scoop.it

Robin Good: David McCandlees, the author of the book Information is Beautiful celebrates great data visualization and information design work through the Information is Beautiful Awards.

Together with a jury of experts like Brian Eno, Paola Antonelli, Maria Popova, Simon Rogers and Aziz Kami, he has curated a unique selection of 300 designs and a short list of finalists in the following categories:

 

» Data visualization– A singular visualisation of data or information.» Infographic – Using multiple data visualisations in service to a theme or story

 

» Interactive visualization – Any viz where you can dynamically filter or explore the data.

 

» Data journalism – A combination of text and visualizations in a journalistic format.

 

» Motion infographic – Moving and animated visualizations along a theme or story.

 

» Tool or website – Online tools & apps to aid datavizzing.

 

The selection itself is worth a tour of the site and of this initiative.

Face Detection using HTML5, Javascript, Webrtc, Websockets, Jetty and OpenCV

Face Detection using HTML5, Javascript, Webrtc, Websockets, Jetty and OpenCV | C.S Care | Scoop.it

Through HTML5 and the corresponding standards, modern browsers get more standarized features with every release. Most people have heard of websockets that allows you to easily setup a two way communication channel with a server, but one of the specifications that hasn't been getting much coverage is the webrtc specificiation.

 

With the webrtc specification it will become easier to create pure HTML/Javascript real-time video/audio related applications where you can access a user's microphone or webcam and share this data with other peers on the internet. For instance you can create video conferencing software that doesn't require a plugin, create a baby monitor using your mobile phone or more easily facilitate webcasts. All using cross-browser features without the use of a single plugin.
