MPEG (moving picture experts group) is part of the ISO (International Organization for Standardization). It has several standard groups including MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-3, MPEG-4, MPEG-7 and MPEG-21, each for a specific task. MPEG-2 is the standard applied to HDTV, although MPEG-3 was designed for HDTV and later rejected for MPEG-2. MPEG 4 is the graphics and video compression algorithm standard for Quick Time technology. MPEG-4 files are smaller so they can be transmitted (video and images) over narrower bandwidth. Layers of animation in two and three-dimensions, video, graphics and texts can be mixed. MPEG-7 is a multimedia content description interface that doesn’t apply to any specific application. MPEG-21 defines content and processes for accessing, searching and protecting content copyrights.
