Video Compression: MPEG-4 and Beyond

Ali Saman Tosun, Ohio State University


Technological developments in the networking technology and the computers make use of video possible. Storing and transmitting uncompressed raw video is not a good idea, it requires large storage space and bandwidth. Special algorithms which take the characteristics of the video into account can compress the video with high compression ratio. In this paper I will give a overview of the standardization efforts on video compression: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MPEG-7, and I will explain the current video compression trends briefly.
