World Standards Day 14 October 2019: “Video standards create a global stage”

World Standards Day will be on 14 October 2019.

World Standards Day promotes the role of standards in meeting the needs of consumers, industry, business and government. Consumers’ Federation Australia takes this opportunity to thank all the CFA Standards representatives participating on Standards Australia Technical Committees who ensure that standards address the concerns of everyday Australians. 

This year’s theme for World Standards Day is the advances in video technology which have changed our world – revolutionizing entertainment, connecting friends and families across the globe, enriching our communications experiences and enabling major improvements in medical care and education. 

Having standards recognised and respected all over the world means that video encoded on one device can be decoded by another, regardless of the device being used. This introduces economies of scale that help to grow the market, giving innovators the confidence to invest in new video applications and services. Read more here.
