ITU-T Recommendation H.262
Title: Information technology - Generic coding of moving pictures and associated audio information: Video
Date of adoption : 07/1995
Notes : ISO/IEC International Standard 13818-2
This Recommendation | International Standard specifies coded representation of video data and the decoding process required to reconstruct pictures. It provides a generic video coding scheme which serves a wide range of applications, bit rates, picture resolutions and qualities. Its basic coding algorithm is a hybrid of motion compensated prediction and DCT. Pictures to be coded can be either interlaced or progressive. Necessary algorithmic elements are integrated into a single syntax, and a limited number of subsets are defined in terms of Profile (functionalities) and Level (parameters) to facilitate practical use of this generic video coding standard.
