For over a decade, a group of top technologists have been meeting quietly all around the world to launch a series of not-so-quiet revolutions. It sounds like something out of the latest spy novel, but its not. The group of technologists is the Motion Picture Experts Group, more commonly known as MPEG, and the closely related Video Coding Experts Group of the International Telecommunications Union. The revolutions they have launched include MPEG-1, MPEG- 2, and MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 digital video, which made widespread HDTV and mobile video possible. All of these digital video standards have been immensely successful at providing consumers with better experiences, more choices, and enhanced mobility.
