what is...
Stands for Motion Picture Experts Group. Is a set of 'lossy' compression standards. With MPEG, information regarded as unimportant (i.e imperceptible to the viewer or listener) is irretrievably discarded by means of a highly complex mathematical process. The data rate is considerably reduced, though. MPEG1, as used on Video CDs, is a low bitrate variant capable of VHS quality. MPEG2 works at faster bitrates, and can yield high quality results-as demonstrated by DVD.
