Press release

The Emmy-award-winning Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG), the committee that has developed the MP3, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and a host of other standards that have transformed and enriched the way humans interact with media, will hold its 100th meeting in Geneva, Switerland on 30 April to 4 May 2012.

On the 2nd of May MPEG will hold the “MPEG 100 Event” to celebrate close to a quarter of century of intense activity that has seen thousands of digital media experts from tens of countries and hundreds of companies working collaboratively to advance the frontiers of technology.

The event will be attended by top-ranking officials from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC), the organizations co-sponsoring the Joint ISO/IEC Technical Committee (JTC 1) on Information Technology under which MPEG operates, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) with which MPEG has developed two video compression standards and is currently developing the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard, and the World Intellectual Property Organization.

Digital Media have brought users a revolution in the way media are created, distributed and consumed with profound ramifications in industry, society and individuals. Digital media are now an integral part of billions of people life, making it better, more interconnected and social.

The MPEG 100 event will be an important opportunity to confirm that international organisations maintain close cooperation in charting the future of digital media.
