Multimedia Overview - MULTIMEDIA

The Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG) was established in 1988 to create a standard for delivery of digital video and audio. Membership grew from about 25 experts in 1988 to a community of more than 350, from about 200 companies and organizations, It is appropriately recognized that proprietary interests need to be maintained within the family of MPEG standards. This is accomplished by defining only a compressed bitstream that implicitly defines the decoder. The compression algorithms, and thus the encoders, are completely up to the manufacturers.

In this chapter, we will study some of the most important design issues of MPEG - 1 and 2. The next chapter will cover some basics of the later standards, MPEG - 4 and 7, which have somewhat different objectives.
