IEEE ComSoc Distinguished Speaker Talk: Is it the End of the Streaming Format Wars?
on April 16, 2018 from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM
Prof. Ali C. Begen
adaptive streaming (HAS) has become the technology of choice for delivering
video content over the Internet. We first show that when multiple HAS clients
share a network bottleneck, bad things happen. To address the problems, we
present a number of solution approaches. Second, we discuss the ways to achieve
consistent-quality streaming. Third, we look into some of the recent
developments in DASH and CMAF standards.
Ali C. Begen recently joined the computer science department
at Ozyegin University, Turkey. Previously, he was a research and development
engineer at Cisco, where he designed and developed algorithms, protocols,
products, and solutions in the service provider and enterprise video domains.
Currently, in addition to teaching and research, he provides consulting
services to industrial, legal, and academic institutions through Networked
Media, a company he co-founded. Begen has a PhD in electrical and computer
engineering from Georgia Tech. He received a number of scholarly and industry
awards, and he has editorial positions in prestigious magazines and journals in
the field. He is a senior member of both the IEEE and ACM. In January 2016, he
