ABSTRACT
The article reports on the use of the MPEG-4 video compression format by cable operators. According to Charter Communications vice president of advanced video engineering Doug Ike, the use of MPEG-4 in television, video, mobile, and tablet devices changed the opinion of MSOs that the format is a bandwidth saver. It says that Comcast Corp. leads the distribution of MPEG-4. It adds that the price of set-top decoders for MPEG-4 has fell which made its compression algorithm more efficient.
