The Moving Picture Experts Group

Welcome to MPEG home page

This used to be the home page of MPEG, the group who developed the standards for coded representation of digital audio, video, 3D Graphics and genomic data. Since its establishment in 1988, the group had produced standards that help industry offer end users an ever more enjoyable digital media experience.

This page is kept as historical reference to MPEG achievements. However, some old MPEG groups still like to post their results here.

In its 30 years of activity MPEG had developed an impressive portfolio of standards and technologies that have created an industry worth several hundreds billion USD.

In a world where information technology, consumer electronics, entertainment and telecommunication products and content variously converge by incorporating increasingly sophisticated technologies and the need for timely available standards is as strong as ever, MPEG used to provide a proven mechanism to bring research results into standards that promote innovation for the benefit of all.

Remember the phoenix, though.

This home page is updated until 2020/06/06, when the MPEG founder and convenor Leonardo Chiariglione has resigned because the MPEG group was closed.
