In 2016, the video industry saw the influence of MPEG-DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) growing for many converging reasons. With the accelerated demotion of Silverlight and Flash plug-ins in browsers, only HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) and DASH are surviving in the adaptive bitrate (ABR) format landscape where Media Source Extensions (MSEs) increase their dominance. In the U.S., HLS is clearly taking the lead, at least until the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) version of DASH gets in the game as a rationalization factor between broadcast and over-the-top (OTT). In Europe, however, DASH is already strong. It has grabbed the attention of most broadcasters, pure OTT players, and streaming service providers looking at future-proofing their ABR format strategy, supporting 4K/Ultra HD (UHD) delivery scenarios and premium services.

The 25 Gigabit Ethernet Consortium, established to develop 25G and 50G Ethernet specifications based upon 25 Gbps SERDES technology, today announced record participation in, and successful completion of, the first 25G and 50G Ethernet plugfest.

Held at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory(UNH-IOL) in Durham, New Hampshire, the plugfest provided a forum where consortium members could collaborate and ensure interoperability of feature sets and configurability between their products. Sixteen companies attended the week-long event with a wide variety of test scenarios including auto-negotiation and stressed conditions. The testing demonstrated a high degree of multi-vendor interoperability and specification conformance.
