About CDVL


CDVL is overseen by a technical committee that strives to maintain the most relevant video content, usage guidance, and web site interface. Where appropriate, this technical committee will also pursue standardization of video content and its usage guidelines in bodies such as the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). CDVL would like to express gratitude and acknowledge the technical contributions from AGH University, Intel Corporation (Technical Research), the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (NTIA/ITS), Netflix, the Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR), Sky UK, and the University of California at Santa Barbara (Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering).


Certain commercial hardware, organizations, and companies are identified in this report to specify adequately the technical aspects of the available video sequences. In no case does such identification imply recommendation or endorsement by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), nor does it imply that the hardware or organizations identified are necessarily the best available for the particular application or use.
