Acronym: Moving Picture Experts Group

The MPEG are responsible for discussing, developing and rubber-stamping new standards for digital video storage, delivery and compression.

One unusual and extremely significant off-shoot of an MPEG standard is MP3 - the audio format that was a part of the MPEG-1 specification, but became far more popular as a method of compression audio in its own right.
