Uniting video delivery
Open Caching is an industry-wide initiative, with defined specifications and best practices developed by the Streaming Video Alliance, to unite streaming video caching and data sharing amongst providers. When service providers, rights holders, and network operators connect together via the Open Caching Network, video delivery data and caching insights can be shared to ensure the best possible viewing experience regardless of network.
about the streaming video alliance
Comprised of members from across the video ecosystem, the Streaming Video Alliance is a global association that works to solve critical streaming video challenges in an effort to improve end-user experience and adoption. The organization focuses on three main activities: first is to educate the industry on challenges, technologies, and trends through informative, publicly-available resources such as whitepapers, articles, and e-books; second is to foster collaboration among different video ecosystem players through working groups, quarterly meetings, and conferences; third is to define solutions for streaming video challenges by producing specifications, best practices, and other technical documentation.
