Yoel Zanger, CEO of Giraffic, talks about the problems inherent in streaming HD and UHD video content , such as various bottlenecks in the Internet and within consumers' homes that reduce the quality of the image, and how his company's Adaptive Video Acceleration (AVA) addresses these concerns entirely from the user's end of the network by analyzing traffic patterns, making parallel HTTP requests for smaller packets, and shaping the playback to increase the throughput to the device by a factor of 3. He also discusses adaptive-streaming protocols such as MPEG-DASH, answers to chat-room questions, and more.
