Regarding the course, June Chris Heider, one of the first students, commented, “After taking this course from start to finish I will say that it was one of the most informative 2.5 hours I've ever spent. The information was presented in a very structured and organized way and I enjoyed seeing the example screenshots and real world information from well-known companies that leverage streaming video at a production scale. The PDF downloads were a nice touch along with the coverages of some of the latest protocols and technologies such as DASH, SME and EME. I highly recommend this course!”
