The article presents the new generation of MPEG standards for digital video and audio data which provide efficient and higher quality application technology. MPEG-B is defining number of coding tools including the Reconfigurable video Coding (RVC) and binary MPEG format for Extensible Markup Language (XML). MPEG-C deals with the implementation of integer-output inverse discrete cosine transforms (DCT). MPEG-U Rich Media User Interface gives standard protocol for user interfaces and widgets.

    In video encoding, there are a large number of discrete cosine transform (DCT) coefficients of the prediction residue which are quantized to zeros. Therefore, it is desired to design a method which can early detect zero quantized DCT coefficients before implementing DCT and quantization and thus...
