DASH-IF is industry group developing best practices and recommendations around usage of MPEG-DASH. Unified streaming is a member since 2014 and contributed to the different IOP specifications and ingest protocol specification where it collaborated with other industry leaders.

These are industry consortia for cable, television, streaming technology and standards. While Unified is not a member it does hold positions as invited expert in these consortia.
