A standard formulated by the Motion Picture Experts Group to perform high compression of video data for reproduction on a variety of media, including CD-ROM and DVD-ROM. The processor intensive algorithms used for coding and decoding the video data work best when coupled with specialized hardware designed to accelerate this process. MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 have proven popular outside of the United States for distributing films and videos on CD-ROM. MPEG-2 is now the standard interlaced video format used for DVD-Video.
