Video Interest at IETF meetings
There are a lot of people who are doing video-related work, with and to Internet protocols at the IETF. Nonetheless, many people are not aware of each other’s efforts, if for no other reason than that the work winds up in different Areas — transport, security, art, and even routing.
Starting from the “Glass to Glass Internet Ecosystem” proposal BoFs and get togethers, we’ve been hosting informal “video interest group” (VIG) meetings during IETF weeks to bring people together so that there is greater awareness — of each other, of the work that’s being done. Our hope is that will help both the work being done, and the IETF as a whole. It can be pretty daunting to try to get one particular thing done in the IETF, and knowing that there are others interested in the outcome can be helpful. Also, the more we can raise awareness of general video interests at the IETF, the more likely the IETF is to recognize the need to address them.
Listed below are the relevant get togethers we’ve had at IETF meetings over the past few years.
