Adtec Digital recently became a member of the MPEG Industry Forum, an organization that fosters the adoption of MPEG standards by establishing them as accepted and widely used standards among creators of content, developers, manufacturers, providers of services and end users.
Adtec President Kevin Ancelin said his company would utilize the MPEG Industry Forum’s resources, including the interoperability testing for MPEG -4 part 10 development and resources for developing emerging MPEG standards. MPEGIF offers various services including the testing of products, promotion for potential users of MPEG technology and certification programs to ensure tools are MPEG-4 conformant.
MPEGIF promotional activities include supplying MPEG 4-related information, products and services as well as organizing conference sessions, tutorials, exhibitions and seminars. It also carries out support functions such as initiating discussions with industry leaders and maintaining extensive knowledge in the legalities of MPEG standards. MPEGIF represents approximately 100 companies from diverse industries. MPEGIF member companies are evenly distributed across North America, Europe and Asia, addressing MPEG adoption issues that go beyond the charter of ISO/IEC MPEG.
Specifically focusing on the widespread adoption of MPEG-4 AVC and ASC, activities include marketing, interoperability and the MPEGIF Logo Qualification Program as well as presence at trade show and extensive conference participation.
