The broadcast industry will experience a significant reduction in the complexity of streaming protocols in 2015, as the MPEG-dash protocol gathers momentum, according to Luke Gaydon, vice president of digital media for the EMEA region at Brightcove.

“In 2015, I think we will see MPEG-dash, the streaming protocol coming more and more to the fore, which is great because it will act as an agent to collapse a lot of the complexity that we see around streaming protocols,” Gaydon told Digital Broadcast Middle East.

Gaydon added that the industry is also likely to see an acceleration in adoption of cloud-based technologies in the coming year. “I think in 2015 we’ll see the perception of the cloud changing, with operators beginning to recognise that it is a service by which you can get real performance enhancements and really scale your infrastructure.”

These trends are a welcome development for Brightcove, which specialises in the provision of OTT video content distribution.

Gaydon’s comments echoed views expressed during a recent discussion on HEVC at TV Connect MENA.
