You can think of Conviva as a streaming TV professor – a teacher of the highest academic rank when it comes to knowing how to deliver the best viewer experience possible. Conviva has written the papers that define the streaming TV industry and has academic intelligence and curiosity at its core. Conviva's technology is exact, the data is exceptional, and the innovation is proven. Conviva is full of tenured experts with a focus on precision and academic integrity. Understanding how to leverage the internet as a mass-scale video transport medium has positioned Conviva to be the architects of experience.
Our most recent academic research has been centered around artificial intelligence (video AI) – specifically, artificial intelligence models for better understanding video on the Internet.
Dr. Stoica's research group at the University of California, Berkeley has done pioneering research on building large-scale, real-time cluster computing frameworks, and on enabling multiple frameworks such as Hadoop and Hypertable, to seamlessly share the same cluster.
Dr. Zhang and Dr. Stoica have worked on new network architectures that enable direct control for routing data traffic, supporting network-level objectives and providing network-wide visibility.
Dr. Zhang's End System Multicast (ESM) research group at Carnegie Mellon pioneered the overlay multicast architecture and techniques to support scalable internet video streaming. The award-winning Ph.D. dissertation of Dr. Ion Stoica, co-founder and chief technical officer, pioneered the first scalable architecture to manage quality of service states in a distributed networking environment.
Conviva's award-winning team of engineers and scientists has discovered and validated the need for a preemptive viewer experience optimization tool that quantifies and validates video quality impact on viewer engagement.
