Abstract

Broadcast multimedia are discussed here in the context of digital television standards. Europe, North America and Japan have established the basic standardization efforts for digital television. The basic technology for realizing digitalization in broadcast services is the MPEG-2 standard. MPEG-2 defines the basic concepts for the provision of digital A/V services in all the digital TV standardization efforts. MPEG-2 defines a signal compression, packetization and multiplexing standard for digital audio and video as well as rudimentary mechanisms for conveying other data in a digital A/V stream.
