Introduction of the MPEG-4


In the recent years, technical developments in the area of audio-visual communications, and in particular, in video coding, have developed to a point that the telecommunications, computer, film and television technologies can be combined to create new and exciting opportunities, with new challenges and new requirements. Among the most important trends is the need to increase the interaction capabilities between the user and the audio-visual (AV) information by considering the scene as a composition of objects, not just a set of pixels.

In this talk, we will give an overview of MPEG-4. This new audio-visual standard aiming to establish a universal, efficient coding of different forms of audio-visual data, called audio-visual objects. We will introduce the base which MPEG-4 is building on, scope and features of MPEG-4 standards, the pieces of technology it includes and the applications which are supported by this technology.
