MPEG-4 DISC FUNCTION INTRODUCTION
MPEG-4 is the fourth video and audio encoding standard released by MPEG (The abbreviation of “Moving Pictures Experts Group”). VCD is based on MPEG-1 technology and DVD is based on MPEG-2. MPEG-4 takes advantage of narrow bandwidth, pursuing the best picture quality by compressing and transmitting the data in frame reconstructed technology. The audio data Is compressed by WMA standard. MPEG-4 is the most advanced compression technology standard in the AV field. It has the highest compression rate.
By MPEG-4 technology, we can encode and compress a DVD film into one or two CD-R discs with pretty good picture quality or can burn several films that have the same quality as VCD into one CD-R disc, or burn several films that have a similar quality to DVD into DVD-ROM disc.
Before calling for service, you can perform the checks described in the troubleshooting guide for immediate solutions.
