SVTA Technical Groups
The SVTA Technical groups, from working groups to study groups, represent functional areas of the streaming workflow in which technical challenges are addressed by member companies and employees of the SVTA member companies.
These are functional groups within the Alliance and often address one or more technical challenges. They are chaired by two member companies.
Sub-groups represent an idea within a working group that seems bigger than just a project (i.e., more than one challenge to address) but aren’t quite robust enough to warrant a separate working group. They usually have one chair.
Study groups are formed to investigate a particularly interesting aspect of the streaming video space (i.e., VR, AI, ML). That aspect is often too young of a technology to formalize specific responses such as a best practice, specification, or guideline.
Technical Groups are lead by Chairs (one, two, or three people working to manage the group’s activities and direction) and Ambassadors (one person who helps evangelize the group’s technology to the industry).
Many of the working groups, sub groups, and study groups pursue projects related to the technical challenges in a variety of different topical areas.
