MPEG-4: Moving Pictures Experts Group 4

May 12, 2017

MPEG-4 is a method of defining compression of audio and visual (AV) digital data.Uses of MPEG-4 include compression of AV data for web (streaming media) and CD distribution, voice (telephone, videophone) and broadcast television applications.

MPEG-4 absorbs many of the features of MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 and other related standards, adding new features such as (extended) VRML support for 3D rendering, object-oriented composite files (including audio, video and VRML objects), support for externally specified Digital Rights Management and various types of interactivity. AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) was standardized as an adjunct to MPEG-2 before MPEG-4 was issued.

Initially, MPEG-4 was aimed primarily at low bit-rate video communications; however, its scope as a multimedia coding standard was later expanded. MPEG-4 is efficient across a variety of bit-rates ranging from a few kilobits per second to tens of megabits per second. MPEG-4 provides the following functions:

1.  Improved coding efficiency over MPEG-2

2.  Ability to encode mixed media data (video, audio, speech)

3.  Error resilience to enable robust transmission

4.  Ability to interact with the audio-visual scene generated at the receiver
