Several proprietary technologies, such as Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) , Microsoft Smooth Streaming , and Adobe's HTTP Dynamic Streaming
(HDS) , have been developed for this purpose.
Commercialized services include Microsoft's Smooth Streaming , Apple's HTTP Live Streaming , Adobe's HTTP Dynamic Streaming
, and the international standard called Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) .
Previously, HLS only supported files packaged in the MPEG-2 Transport Stream container, while the Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP standard (DASH), and proprietary technologies like Microsoft's Smooth Streaming and Adobe's HTTP Dynamic Streaming
(HDS), supported files packaged in the fragmented MP4 container (tMP4).
Numerous adaptive streaming methods developed by different vendors like Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) ,Abode HTTP Dynamic streaming
(HDS) and Microsoft smooth streaming ,.
Halo Experience will offer audience measurement capabilities to better track connected user viewing patterns, and will support the full range of streaming formats, including Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), Microsoft Smooth Streaming, Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming
(HDS) and MPEG-DASH.
