Moving JPEG

Computing Dictionary

Moving JPEG definition

graphics, compression
(M-JPEG) A compression technique for moving images which applies JPEG still image compression to each frame of a moving picture sequence.
Play-back requires a machine capable of decompressing and displaying each JPEG image quickly enough to sustain the required frame rate of the picture sequence.
There is no standard for Moving JPEG as with JPEG, but there are JPEG compression chips (for example see Zoran (http://zoran.com/)) which are designed to work at television frame rates and resolutions.
See also MPEG and MPEG2.
