Bitmovin Joins the Alliance for Open Media

WAKEFIELD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Alliance for Open Media (AOMedia) today announced that Bitmovin, a leading provider of video streaming infrastructure, has joined the organization at the Promoter-level. Bitmovin will collaborate with Alliance members to promote the development of open web media experiences and accelerate the delivery of royalty-free, open web media standards.


Bitmovin is synonymous with innovation in the video streaming industry and helps renowned media organizations deliver superior viewing experiences to audiences worldwide. The company, which received a Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), has a long history of innovation that began with the co-creation of the MPEG-DASH video streaming standard by Bitmovin’s founders. Most recently, Bitmovin announced enhanced support for AV1 encoding, including 5x speed improvements and the addition of content-aware, Per-Title optimization technology. These advancements are now available as part of Bitmovin’s cloud encoding service.

“We joined the Alliance for Open Media because it shares our vision of taking video streaming viewing experiences to the next level with AV1,” said Stefan Lederer, CEO and co-founder of Bitmovin. “We look forward to working alongside Alliance members to open up new possibilities for using AV1 royalty-free, cross-platform, online video across a wide range of applications.”

The AV1 open-source codec enables more screens to display vivid images, deeper colors, brighter highlights, darker shadows and other enhanced UHD imaging features that consumers and businesses have come to expect – all while using less data.

“We’re very pleased to welcome Bitmovin to the Alliance for Open Media, reflecting our joint commitment to leverage AV1 to improve streaming media in new and cutting-edge ways,” said AOMedia Executive Director John Simmons. “We look forward to collaborating with Bitmovin in our goal to drive the next generation of open media standards that power tomorrow’s online video, tools, streaming media services, and devices.”

AV1 delivers a next-generation video format that is interoperable, open, optimized for internet delivery and scalable to any modern device at any bandwidth. Designed at the outset for hardware optimization, the AV1 specification, reference code, and bindings are available for toolmakers and developers to download to begin designing AV1 into products.

すでに1000社の顧客がプラットフォームを利用し、CYGNVS™は5500万ドルのシリーズA資金調達で事業を拡大へ 米カリフォルニア州ロスアルトス--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(ビジネスワイヤ) -- CYGNVSは本日、シリーズA資金調達で5500万ドルの資金提供を受け、ステルス状態から脱却したと発表しました。また、組織がサイバー危機に準備・対応できるように取り組む中で、接続(Connected)、自信(Confident)、管理(Control)、準拠(Compliant)を維持できるように特別設計された先駆的なガイド型サイバー危機プラットフォームについて明らかにしました。 グローバルセキュリティー顧問でニューヨーク・タイムズ紙ベストセラー「Future Crimes」の著者であるマーク・グッドマン氏は、次のように述べています。「サイバーセキュリティーにどれだけ費用をかけても、サイバー危機は回避できないため、世界中の組織はすべて、そのような事態に備え、計画する必要があります。効果のある対応は驚くほど複雑であり、被害者の大半はその場しのぎで対処しようとするため、失敗します。あらゆる組織のサイバーレジリエンスにとって、準備をし、練習済みの計画を用意しておくことは、極めて重要です。」 サイバー危機が発生した場合、準備と実践練習が大きな違いを生みます。「2022年データ侵害コスト報告書」のデータによると、より周到に準備と実践練習を行っていた組織は、平均138万ドルの直接費用を節減しています。 CYGNVS(CYber GuidaNce Virtual Spaceの略)は、組織がサイバー危機の前に、準備と実践練習を通じてリスクを低減し、ガイド型の迅速な対応によって、サイバー危機のコストと影響を軽減できるように支援します。 保険業界との提携 保険業界は、ビルのスプリンクラー・システムの導入を促進して火災リスクを大幅に低減しましたが、サイバー保険業界もサイバー危機の準備と対応に関する深い専門知識を有しています。 CYGNVSは、サイバー保険を提供する世界的大手AIGと提携しました。AIGは、何千件ものサイバー侵害に対応した経験に基づき、侵害への対応を最適化する上でのさまざまな重要課題を特定しました。これには、顧客によるエンドツーエンドの対応プロセス全体の把握、イベント発生後の安全な通信、侵害顧問やフォレンジック・コンサルタントなど、外部対応プロバイダーとの効果的で一貫性のある作業などがあります。AIGは、サイバー保険の請求解決における同社の経験、専門知識、ソートリーダーシップに基づいた助言を提供し、CYGNVSの要件作成を支援して、CYGNVSが世界中の組織の課題に対処できる堅牢なプラットフォームを開発できるようにしました。…
