MPEG-A is a group of standards for composing MPEG systems formally known as ISO/IEC 23000 - Multimedia Application Format, published since 2007.[1][2][3]

MPEG-A consists of 20 parts, including:

  • MPEG-A Part 1: Purpose for multimedia application formats
  • MPEG-A Part 2: MPEG music player application format
  • MPEG-A Part 3: MPEG photo player application format
  • MPEG-A Part 4: Musical slide show application format
  • MPEG-A Part 5: Media streaming application format
  • MPEG-A Part 6: Professional archival application format
  • MPEG-A Part 7: Open access application format
  • MPEG-A Part 8: Portable video application format
  • MPEG-A Part 9: Digital Multimedia Broadcasting application format
  • MPEG-A Part 10: Surveillance application format
  • MPEG-A Part 11: Stereoscopic video application format
  • MPEG-A Part 12: Interactive music application format
  • MPEG-A Part 13: Augmented reality application format
  • MPEG-A Part 15: Multimedia preservation application format
  • MPEG-A Part 16: Publish/Subscribe Application Format
  • MPEG-A Part 17: Multiple sensorial media application format
  • MPEG-A Part 18: Media linking application format
  • MPEG-A Part 19: Common media application format (CMAF) for segmented media (MPEG CMAF),[4] – a media application format for ABR (adaptive bitrate) media

Digital Video Broadcasting

Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) is a set of international open standards for digital television. DVB standards are maintained by the DVB Project, an international industry consortium, and are published by a Joint Technical Committee (JTC) of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) and European Broadcasting Union (EBU).


EIDR, or the Entertainment Identifier Registry, is a global unique identifier system for a broad array of audio visual objects, including motion pictures, television, and radio programs. The identification system resolves an identifier to a metadata record that is associated with top-level titles, edits, DVDs, encodings, clips, and mash-ups. EIDR also provides identifiers for Video Service providers, such as broadcast and cable networks.

As of February, 2018, EIDR contains over 1.8 million records, including 298K movies, and 794K episodes of over 25K TV series.

EIDR is an implementation of a Digital Object Identifier (DOI).

This is a list of published International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards and other deliverables. For a complete and up-to-date list of all the ISO standards, see the ISO catalogue.The standards are protected by copyright and most of them must be purchased. However, about 300 of the standards produced by ISO and IEC's Joint Technical Committee 1 (JTC1) have been made freely and publicly available.


MPEG-1 is a standard for lossy compression of video and audio. It is designed to compress VHS-quality raw digital video and CD audio down to 1.5 Mbit/s (26:1 and 6:1 compression ratios respectively) without excessive quality loss, making video CDs, digital cable/satellite TV and digital audio broadcasting (DAB) possible.Today, MPEG-1 has become the most widely compatible lossy audio/video format in the world, and is used in a large number of products and technologies. Perhaps the best-known part of the MPEG-1 standard is the MP3 audio format it introduced.

The MPEG-1 standard is published as ISO/IEC 11172 – Information technology—Coding of moving pictures and associated audio for digital storage media at up to about 1.5 Mbit/s.

The standard consists of the following five Parts:

Systems (storage and synchronization of video, audio, and other data together)

Video (compressed video content)

Audio (compressed audio content)

Conformance testing (testing the correctness of implementations of the standard)

Reference software (example software showing how to encode and decode according to the standard)

Moving Picture Experts Group

The Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) is a working group of authorities that was formed by ISO and IEC to set standards for audio and video compression and transmission. It was established in 1988 by the initiative of Hiroshi Yasuda (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone) and Leonardo Chiariglione, group Chair since its inception. The first MPEG meeting was in May 1988 in Ottawa, Canada. As of late 2005, MPEG has grown to include approximately 350 members per meeting from various industries, universities, and research institutions. MPEG's official designation is ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 11 – Coding of moving pictures and audio (ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1, Subcommittee 29, Working Group 11).

Program and System Information Protocol

The Program and System Information Protocol (PSIP) is the MPEG (a video and audio industry group) and privately defined program-specific information originally defined by General Instrument for the DigiCipher 2 system and later extended for the ATSC digital television system for carrying metadata about each channel in the broadcast MPEG transport stream of a television station and for publishing information about television programs so that viewers can select what to watch by title and description.
