What is MPEG4?
MPEG4 is designed to deliver DVD-quality video (MPEG-2) at lower data rates and smaller file sizes. This provides Satellite Programming Carriers, such as DirecTV and Dish Network , the ability to provide more content using the same bandwidth. Signal Security is also increased thereby reducing piracy concerns. MPEG4 also offers increased flexibility in moving media between devices over a multiple of media's. Home video distribution over ethernet is one possible future for Satellite Television in the home. MPEG4 provides a universal standard for manufacturers to design devices that can interact and distribute video and audio like never before.
