We all agree that standardization is generally a good idea as it helps move the industry forward through ubiquitous interoperability and rich ecosystem of vendors. We could see that at NAB 2012, MPEG-DASH posters and banners plastered the Halls, but more importantly real demos were behind every corner. Partners of ours such as Harmonic, Envivio, NXP, Akamai and many others showed that standardized streaming is not just a dream but rather becoming a reality.

Why am I sitting at the Schiphol airport cafe again? You guessed it – I lived through another successful IBC. No this time I'm not indulging on the famous Dutch poffertjes, but I did buy some old Dutch cheese. Yes Gouda, which my wife loves. Did you know thatGoudais a beautiful medieval Dutch city with traditional cheese making? If not, go and visit next time.

o, this time I was not sipping coffee at a foreign airport nor feeding my sweet tooth with poffertjes. This year I drove to NAB and it is hard to type while driving 320 miles back from Las Vegas to San Diego.
