on consumer devices and reduce the
difficulty faced by content creators in
distributing video to these devices. The
WAVE Project is building "profiles"
- standards that identify necessary
elements from other standards, all of
which are part of the end-to-end video
equation. WAVE's goal is to reference
accepted industry standards where possible and avoid creating new protocols.
Existing standards like HTML5, MSE/
EME, DASH, HLS and others factor
into the equation. Once WAVE finishes
its profiles, it plans to develop interoperability tools for industry to ensure
solid compatibility for devices and
reduced complexity and uncertainty for
content companies.

Cybersecurity

C

TA will highlight several new industry standards
initiatives covering a range of consumer technologies
from health and fitness to over-the-top television to
drones at CES 2017. Join us to learn how these
standards impact your company.
Measuring Sleep
CTA's Health & Fitness Technology
Subcommittee recently completed
its first standard on wearable sleep
monitors. Approved as an American
National Standard, ANSI/CTA-2052.1,
Definitions and Characteristics for
Wearable Sleep Monitors, defines terms
used to describe sleep and wakefulness.
It also indicates how what is being
defined is measured or calculated.
"Initial sleep onset time," for example,
might be indicated by decreased body
temperature, slowing heart rate or

decreased muscle activity. This standard
was a cooperative effort between CTA
and the National Sleep Foundation.
The two organizations are focusing
their efforts on how devices can measure
sleep parameters in standardized ways.

Over-the-Top Video
The Web Application Video Ecosystem
(WAVE) project is a global effort
by leading content, infrastructure,
technology and consumer device
companies to improve the handling of
internet-delivered commercial video

Drones
CTA's Unmanned Aerial Systems
Working Group is developing a standard
for assigning serial numbers to consumer
drones. The industry is working together
on this project in response to Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA) work. n
Join us at CES 2017 at the CTA Standards
conference track held in the LVCC on
Wednesday, January 4 to learn more about
our latest projects.

How CTA Standards
Affect Your Business

CTA is bringing together securityfocused industry groups to discuss
best practices to address cybersecurity
issues. The Security Summit at CTA's
Technology & Standards Forum in
Austin, TX, brought the FIDO Alliance,
the Internet Society, the Online Trust
Alliance and the Trusted Computing
Group together to discuss the best
practices they've developed for building,
maintaining, and using devices and
services in the most secure manner
possible. CTA also worked with Cigital,
a firm specializing in cybersecurity, to
develop an online tool that companies
can use to self-assess their cybersecurity
efforts and show how the company is
doing compared to an anonymized
group of industry peers.
