Editor's Note

MPEG has recently finalized a new standard to enable dynamic and adaptive streaming of media over HTTP. This standard aims to address the interoperability needs between devices and servers of various vendors. There is broad industry support for this new standard, which offers the promise of transforming the media-streaming landscape.
