Moving Pictures Experts Group

Meaning – The term Moving Pictures Experts Group, or MPEG, refers to a group that is working to establish a standard for compressing and storing motion video and animation in digital form.

It works with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to ensure media compression standards are widely adopted and universally available.

Using MPEG compression, the file size of a multimedia file can be significantly reduced with little noticeable loss in quality. This makes transferring files over the Internet more efficient, which helps conserve Internet bandwidth.

Example of usage“MPEG compression is so ubiquitous that the term “MPEG” is commonly used to refer to a video file saved in a MPEG file format rather than the organization itself. These files usually have a “.mpg” or “.mpeg” file extension.”
