It examines the state of technology and how the process of video compression actually works. It also discusses some of the different vendors, as well as the current, significant research going on within the technology.

From the Paper:

"Technologies like the Internet, MP3 Players, DVD's, HDTV, and digital cameras to name a few are all driving the demand for consistently new and improved ways of compressing audio and video data. The current state of the technology for Video compression revolves around the ideas like that of the MPEG or Moving Picture Experts Group. An MPEG (correctly pronounced M-peg), is actually a standard used to program or code both audio and visual data. Examples include movies, videos and digital music. The information once in an MPEG format is digital compressed so it is easier to send it or store it based on the fact that less room is needed."
