Optimisation of Media-Streaming with MPEG-DASH

TARA Systems participates in ANOPAS – a research project for application oriented optimisation of media streaming with MPEG-DASH and extends its MPEG-DASH client InarisDASH with features required by HbbTV 2.0. The project partners are Fraunhofer Fokus and Technische Universität Berlin.

The ANOPAS research project has been set-up by the partners TARA Systems, Fraunhofer FOKUS and TU Berlin to develop and evaluate innovative adaptation algorithms for adaptive streaming. The main focus is on the MPEG-DASH streaming protocol since this is widely used in web browsers and with HbbTV services.

ANOPAS aims at reaching the best possible playback quality, fairness between users in multiple user environments, live streaming with low latency and efficient operation in wireless networks. The generated solutions shall be implemented in prototypes and evaluated in realistic test scenarios. This project has received funding from the Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie (BMWi) and their innovation program »Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand« (ZIM).
