Adtec Digital Joins Forces With MPEG Industry Forum

Nashville, TN - Adtec Digital has become a member of the MPEG Industry Forum, an organization aiming to further the adoption of MPEG standards, by establishing them as well accepted and widely used standards among creators of content, developers, manufacturers, providers of services and end-users.
"Adtec is excited about becoming involved in the MPEG Industry Forum and taking advantage of the various programs and services provided," Adtec president, Kevin Ancelin, said. "We are especially looking forward to utilizing 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 is a forum for industry players that want to manufacture, deploy or use emerging MPEG technologies," MPEGIF president, Sebastian Moeritz, said. "The philosophy is that all involved parties, even though competitors in some respect, profit from the standard to be accepted and take off. Interoperability testing is of paramount importance and tremendous value in product development with open standards, such as MPEG 4, in the international marketplace. Companies come together to test their codec implementation in order to ensure that products will work together, and any interoperability problems are resolved in a collaborative way."
