AerQ joins the Streaming Video Alliance


AerQ, the IFE joint venture between LG Electronics and Lufthansa Technik, has joined the Streaming Video Alliance, a global technical association that develops solutions to address the technical challenges of delivering a high-quality video experience at scale. AerQ says the environment and interoperability guidelines provided by the alliance will enable it to develop new inflight video streaming solutions.

Members of the Streaming Video Alliance include companies from across the streaming video ecosystem such as network operators, technology providers, service providers and content owners. AerQ joins as a principal member that can lead working groups, projects, vote on documents, and be voted to the board.

“By joining the Streaming Video Alliance, we join a group of industry leaders who are shaping the future of online video,” said Sang Soo Lee, co-managing director of AerQ. “Engaging with the Alliance’s working groups allows AerQ to explore and develop ideas that benefit our industry while ensuring that AerQ is directly involved in shaping the future of video streaming.”

Jason Thibeault, executive director at the Streaming Video Alliance added, “AerQ contributes to our efforts by providing knowledge and expertise about streaming video applications in the aviation industry, such as in-flight video entertainment, which contribute to improving the output of our working groups and, ultimately, making best practices, guidelines, and specifications more inclusive of all streaming use cases.”
