MPEGIF also will provide updates on the adoption of MPEG-4 (including MPEG-4 AVC / H.264) and the MPEGIF Logo Qualification Program. “MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 is the clear choice by operators and service providers launching next-generation video and TV services for broadcast (SD, HD), internet and mobile as well as for packaged media.” said Sebastian Moeritz, president and CEO of the MPEG Industry Forum.
