The emergence of MPEG Dash as a standard for streaming Internet video has reached a milestone of sorts as it is being tested by Google on Chrome in a limited program initiated earlier this month, says Will Law, Principal Architect, Media Cloud Engineering, Akamai, in this video interview at the IBC conference. This is the first time that a major browser has supported Dash. Law is an evangelist for the new standard as he serves as secretary of Dash Industry Forum.
