Revisiting MPEG

Why a special “encoder” for MPEG? As I mentioned in Hour 2, “Premiere Setup,” MPEG-2 is the de facto standard codec for DVD movies and videos. It presents sharp video and CD-quality audio at about one-thirtieth the data rate of regular analog video and one-fourth the data rate of DV. You've seen movies on DVD and know how good they look. And you've seen those razor-sharp digital satellite TV images. Both systems use MPEG-2-encoded videos.

If you want to create similar quality DVDs to play on your home or business DVD video system, you must use MPEG-2-encoded video files. That's been the case ever since DVD movies arrived on the scene a few years ago.
