Having investigated the basic principles of video compression, it is time to have a look at some real compression algorithms. By far the most widely used family of video compression algorithms used in broadcast and telecommunication applications are the MPEG algorithms. The Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) is a working group of ISO/IEC (the International Organization for Standardisation/International Electrotechnical Commission), i.e. a non governmental international standards organisation. The first MPEG meeting was held in May 1988 in Ottawa, Canada. To date, MPEG has produced a number of highly successful international standards for video compression, as well as for multimedia content management.
