MPEG-2

(compression, standard, algorithm, file format)
A variant of the MPEG video and audio compression algorithm and file format, optimised for broadcast quality video. MPEG-2 was designed to transmit images using progressive coding at 4 Mbps or higher for use in broadcast digital TV and DVD. An MPEG-2 player can handle MPEG-1 data as well.

MPEG-2 has been approved as International Standard IS-13818.
