Jan Willem Kleinrouweler of CWI’s Distributed and Interactive Systems group has received the Excellence in DASH Award at ACM Multimedia Systems 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan.
He received the award (second place) for his paper “Improving Video Quality in Crowded Networks Using a DANE” (by: J.W. Kleinrouweler, B.Meixner, and P.Cesar). In this paper the researchers propose a method to reduce the performance problems that exist in networks with a large number of DASH players.
The award is established by the DASH Industry Forum. The DASH-IF, representing all sectors of the streaming media ecosystem, is proactively and deterministically shaping the future and success of MPEG DASH.
