Welcome to MPEG

This is the home page of the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG), a working group of ISO/IEC with the mission to develop standards for coded representation of digital audio and video and related data. Since 1988 when it has been established, the group has produced standards that help industry offer end users an ever more enjoyable digital media experience.

In its close to 30 years of activity MPEG has 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 provides a proven mechanism to bring research results into standards that promote innovation for the benefit of all.
