ABSTRACT
The article provides answers to questions related to Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG)-4 in the U.S. It is stated that most of the 60-plus million set-tops in circulation do not know MPEG-4. Meanwhile, the conversion to MPEG-4 is economically tricky for non-premium cable networks. Moreover, it is possible that headend transcoder costs twist into the negotiations for smaller and newer networks who are still seeking carriage.
