MPEG Industry Forum Disbanding

MPEG Forum
"To All of Our Colleagues that have been involved with or connected to the MPEG Industry Forum over the past 10 years.
 
We have "declared victory" and the activities of the MPEG Industry Forum are now being wound up. By the end of this month all remaining assets will be put into the hands of the Open IPTV Forum where you can access these through http://www.oipf.tv/mpegif">http://www.oipf.tv/mpegif. When this forum was first initiated in June 2000 it was at a time of great fragmentation in this industry. As silicon , continued to advance alternatives to MPEG-2 emerged in many forms. Our task was to educate and evangelize an emerging standards based solution that became known as MPEG-4 Part 10, aka AVC, aka H.264. Our efforts drove in many directions including many informational events - the MPEG IF Master Class series - and, crucially, a series of important interoperability test rounds combined with some very active tech-lists (that will now be closed on July 1st). Slowly but surely H.264 gained mind share and then market share and today is clearly the dominant codec of choice replacing MPEG-2 around the world. Hence the declaration of victory." - David Price, President
 
For those unfamiliar, the MPEG series of codecs is one of the backbones for digital content distribution and formatting.  Their work has even impacted stereoscopic 3D content in most of the leading S-3D camcorders and video recorders.  Their codecs will continue to exist, of course, but it seems they have outlived their purpose for now.
