Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ali C. Beğen from Özyeğin University Received an Emmy® Award in Technology and Engineering from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences

Earlier this year, the MPEG Systems Working Group was honored with an Emmy® Award for Technology and Engineering for the Standardization of HTTP Encapsulated Protocols by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). The honor was for the Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) standard, a product of years of research and development of many individuals in the DASH subgroup, co-chaired by Dr. Ali C. Beğen from Özyeğin University Computer Science Department.

The DASH standard playes a crucial role in providing consumers access to any media anywhere and anytime since 2010. Revolutionizing the entire media industry, from on-demand to extended-reality and low-latency live streaming, DASH stands out as a truly open and independently developed international standard.

The 73rd Annual Technology & Engineering Awards ceremony was held in Las Vegas in the USA, with the participation of the leading names in the broadcast and media industry. Dr. Ali C. Beğen has been named the first individual from a Turkish organization/institution honored with this award. Upon this success achieved on a global scale, we would like to congratulate Dr. Ali C. Beğen and wish him continued success.

What is MPEG?

The Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG), established in 1988, has been developing international standards for coding, storage and transmission of digital media. The group’s impressive portfolio of standards has created an industry worth several hundred billion dollars, and the group continues developing new technologies for more enjoyable digital media experiences. More information is available at: https://www.mpeg.org/.

What is DASH?

Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) is a suite of standards enabling efficient and scalable distribution of on-demand and live content. In DASH, the high-quality source is transcoded into several representations, each with a different bitrate/resolution. DASH then divides these representations into short-duration and independently decodable chunks to enable adaptation to server, network and client conditions. This way, DASH provides a seamless streaming experience.
