The OATC was managed by a board comprised of senior executives from across the streaming industry.

Industry Veterans Lending Their Expertise and Guidance

Organizations like the OATC require leadership that recognizes the technical challenges and how they might be overcome.

From technology veterans at major content companies like Viacom to executives from leading technology provides such as Adobe, these individuals lent their expertise and experience to help the OATC develop the technical solutions that were published during its tenure.

Why Did the OATC Wind Down?

The board of the OATC decided in 2019 that there was no more work to be done. The revolution of OTT had changed the TV Everywhere landscape. Many content owners were moving to direct subscriptions with consumers (rather than running through cable operators) and large technology providers, like Adobe, had developed out-of-the-box authentication solutions for TV Everywhere. The board felt that the Streaming Video Alliance was a perfect place to house the documents going forward.
