Cover Story: H.264 to Displace MPEG in Video Compression

H.264, the international video compression standard to follow MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4 should start to appear in products some time between 2004 and 2005. Known as the “mammoth Codec” for both its scale and its power, the H.264 high-efficiency coding standard for video achieves a data compression ratio three times higher than that of MPEG-2, and twice that of MPEG-4. A movie of DVD-standard image quality will fit on a 6cm diameter disk.
