AVerMedia Pioneers MPEG-DASH Patent Pools

MPEG-DASH is an adaptive-bitrate streaming standard utilizing encoders (such as AVerMedia's live streaming solutions, AVerCaster HEVC series RS9260/ RS9280 and AVerCaster Premium series RS7310/ RS7170/ RS7190) to send high quality videos in sequential, fragmented segments through existing HTTP web servers onto portable devices, set-top boxes, digital video recorders, or software solutions receiving audio/video feeds. The adaptive bitrate automatically adjusts to network conditions to offer hours of flawless streaming of seamless videos while minimizing lag or re-buffering during playback. Bill Geary, Vice President of Business Development at MPEG LA, says "We commend the hard work and cooperation of the patent holders that have agreed to offer a joint license for the benefit of the DASH marketplace, and we welcome other essential DASH patent owners to join them.”
