Research output: Other contributionpeer-review

Abstract

In order to ensure compatibility among video codecs from different manufacturers and applications and to simplify the development of new applications, intensive efforts have been undertaken in recent years to define digital video standards. These standards were the result of joint development efforts of video and audio compression as well as other system aspects required to support all the applications. Thus they often represent an optimal compromise between performance and complexity. This paper describes the main features of MPEG 1 and MPEG2 video standards, discusses the emerging standard MPEG4 and presents some of its main characteristics.
