Forwarding an email from Mike Bergman, Sr. Director of technology and standards at the Consumer Technology Association (CTA).


Because of the critical importance of Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) for commercial audio-video interoperability on the Web, the CTA and the Web Application Video Ecosystem (WAVE) steering committee have agreed to provide support for EME testing so that it can proceed to recommendation status.
Best regards

Fr: The CTA WAVE Project Steering Committee

Member companies of the Web Application Video Ecosystem (WAVE) Project consider the Encrypted Media Extensions as a crucial component of our effort to ensure global interoperable Web video delivery. During our Amsterdam meeting at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC), CTA and the WAVE Steering Committee agreed to provide support for EME testing so it can proceed to recommendation status. To this end we have identified engineering resources to complete this test development. You can expect to hear additional information from us or from the W3C WAVE participant - Francois Daoust fd@w3.org<mailto:fd@w3.org>.

Please let us know if you have any questions and let us know how else we can help in this exceedingly important work.

Very best regards,
