Central aim of organisation
High quality video streaming and superior network utilization
Briefly describe your organisation
bitmovin GmbH is providing industry leading over the top streaming solutions and server encoding systems, enabling best-quality media experience for the user. Our main expertise is technology related to cutting-edge standards and multimedia technologies, which is the basis for our cloud-based transcoding and streaming product bitcodin.com and our high-quality streaming libraries libdash and bitdash. Moreover we also develop complex multimedia applications according to recent standards and technologies and participate in various standardization bodies, such as ISO/IEC MPEG and IETF.
bitmovin GmbH is a spin-off of the Alpen-Adria University Klagenfurt and the EU FP7 Project Alicante, and participates in different research projects on national and EU FP7 level. Its main research focus is on advanced streaming (MPEG-DASH) and encoding (h.264, h.265) technologies, future internet (HTTP 2.0, ICN/CCN, Multipath-TCP, etc.), quality of experience (QoE) and multimedia systems in general.
