On 14 June Jan Willem Kleinrouweler of CWI’s DIS group has been awarded with the Best Doctoral Consortium Paper Award at the the ACM International Conference on Interactive Experiences for Television and Online Video (TVX 2017). He received the award for his paper “Enhancing Over-the-Top Video Streaming Quality with DASH Assisting Network Elements".
Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) is the leading technology for delivering online video streaming content. However, DASH has performance problems on shared network links. In this paper Kleinrouweler investigates how DASH Assisting Network Elements (DANEs) can be used to optimize bottleneck links for DASH video traffic, with the goal to improve the viewers’ Quality of Experience.
CWI’s Distributed and Interactive Systems (DIS) research group focuses on facilitating and improving the way people access media and communicate with others and with the environment. They address key problems for society and science, resulting from the dense connectivity of content, people, and devices. The group uses recognized scientific methods, following a full-stack, experimental, and human-centered approach.
