Three New Published Documents

Open Caching Capacity Insights Interface and Logging Specification

Two new Open Caching documents, SVTA2049: Capacity Insights Interface and SVTA2050: Logging Specification, continue to build out the suite of technical materials that define the operation and implementation of an Open Caching network.

The Capacity Insights document describes an interface which allows content providers (CPs), service providers (SPs), and content delivery networks (CDNs) to exchange information to facilitate an integrated and informed end-to-end traffic steering workflow. The goal is to enable real-time traffic steering based on available capacity in an effort to keep key performance indicators (KPIs) at acceptable levels.

The Logging Specification describes extensions to the Open Caching Configuration API and the Content Delivery Networks Interconnection (CDNI) Footprint & Capabilities Interface [RFC8008] to support configuration and advertisement of logging capabilities, along with examples and best practices to support logging, log record transformation and transmission between participants within an Open Caching environment.

An Exploration Into Measuring Streaming Latency

SVTA1058: An Exploration Into Measuring Streaming Latency, from the Low Latency Streaming Working Group, highlights the key technical contributing factors to latency and, building on [SVTA5021], details the various options available for measuring latency at each component of the video delivery chain, including the playback device.

New Microsite To Support the SVTA Common Media Library Project

The SVTA Common Media Library (CML) project aims to consolidate common media player functionality into one library for use across all JS media players. The new microsite, much like the Open Caching microsite, aims to support this project by describing planned and implemented features, providing resources for those interested in participating, capturing current details of the public Github repository, and detailing upcoming events where SVTA members may be speaking about the CML. You can find the microsite at
