MPEG

MPEG, for Moving Picture Experts Group, refers to a group of audio/video compression standards used to create videos comparable to VCR quality. The MPEG-1 standard yields a video resolution of 352-by-240 at 30 frames per second, while MPEG-2 offers resolutions of 720x480 and 1280x720 at 60 fps, with full CD-quality audio. To view an MPEG video, you need to download (shareware or commercial) client software that plays it. The MPEG group works within the International Organization for Standardization and periodically improves and updates the compression standards.
