MPEG-H is a group of standards under development by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) for a digital container standard, a video compression standard, an audio compression standard, and two conformance testing standards.[1][2][3][4][5] The group of standards are formally known as ISO/IEC 23008 - High efficiency coding and media delivery in heterogeneous environments.[1][2][3][4][5]

MPEG-H consists of the following parts:[3][6]

  • MPEG-H Part 1: MPEG media transport[1] – A media streaming format similar to the Real-time Transport Protocol that is adaptable to different networks.[6][7]
  • MPEG-H Part 2: High Efficiency Video Coding (under joint development with the ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group)[2][8][9] – A video compression standard that doubles the data compression ratio compared to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC and can support resolutions up to 8192×4320.[6][8][9][10]
  • MPEG-H Part 3: 3D Audio[3] – An audio compression standard for 3D audio that can support many loudspeakers.[6]
  • MPEG-H Part 4: MMT Reference Software
  • MPEG-H Part 5: HEVC Reference Software[4]
  • MPEG-H Part 6: 3D Audio Reference Software
  • MPEG-H Part 7: MMT Conformance Testing
  • MPEG-H Part 8: HEVC Conformance Testing[5]
  • MPEG-H Part 9: 3D Audio Conformance Testing
  • MPEG-H Part 10: MMT FEC Codes
  • MPEG-H Part 11: MMT Composition Coding
  • MPEG-H Part 12: HEVC Image File Format based on MPEG-4 Part 14
  • MPEG-H Part 13: MMT Implementation Guidelines
