Introduction to MPEG

MPEG is an industry standard that defines digital media compression and transmission formats (video, audio). MPEG is commonly used in TV and audio broadcasting systems. MPEG has evolved from a relatively simple standard that allowed standard resolution video files that were stored on highly reliable compact disks (CD) to object oriented IPTV multimedia systems that can be transmitted on packet data systems that regularly loose packets.

Learning the many parts of MPEG (such as metadata and rights management) can be challenging so we created an Introduction to MPEG tutorial (about 35 slides) that explains why and how MPEG works (and it is free!). We update this as MPEG standards are updated.
