ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the transition from the audio and video compression and transmission standard MPEG-2 to MPEG-4. It says that encoders, decoders, transcoders and gateways are already available from a number of companies. It is expected that cable operators will make the transition gradually, beginning with launching MPEG-4 video in switched digital deployments, as well as video-on-demand (VOD).
