Meeting Notice
Adaptive Rate Streaming
Telos Alliance

Kirk Harnack from the Telos Alliance will inform and entertain during a fast-paced dinner meeting.

Many radio stations are streaming their audio to Internet listeners these days.  But for streaming listeners there are some complications.  A big one is stream selection.  Some stations provide different links to streams at various bit rates or coding algorithms.  Other stations provide one stream at a low bit rate that should work for everyone, but is limited in quality.   The solution is Adaptive Rate Audio Streaming.  Video streamers such as Netflix and YouTube have been doing this for a few years, and now audio-only providers have some ways to do it as well.  Three standards exist now for Adaptive Rate Audio Streaming: Microsoft Smooth Streaming, Apple HLS, and MPEG-DASH.  We'll look at these and demonstrate Apple HLS setup and implementation.  We'll see how ordinary browser software on smartphones and modern computers are ready to play Adaptive Rate Audio Streaming right now.
