For this reason, this sampling method is called orthogonal sampling (Fig. 2), as opposed to other sampling schemes used for composite video sampling (4 × Fsc subcarrier locked sampling for instance). The most economic method in terms of bit-rate for video signal digitization seems, a priori, to be to use the composite signal as a source; however, the quality will be limited by its composite nature. 3), the bit rate required by this composite digitization is 13 5 × 8 = 108 Mb/s, which is already a lot!
11). • Block. As in JPEG, a picture is divided into blocks of 8×8 pixels. The block is the layer where the DCT takes place. Owing to the division of the picture into an integer number of macroblocks, the horizontal resolution of MPEG-1/SIF is reduced to 352 pixels for luminance (22 macroblocks) from the 360 pixels of the original SIF picture, since 360 is not a multiple of 16. The effective resolution is then 352×288@25 Hz (22×18 = 396 macroblocks) for pictures originating from 625-line systems, and 352×240@30 Hz (22×15 = 330 macroblocks) for pictures originating from 525-line systems.
The MPEG group thus worked on the definition of a flexible standard optimized for broadcasting. This international standard is known as MPEG-2. As its predecessor, MPEG-2 is specified in three distinct parts, published in November 1994: • MPEG-2 system (ISO/IEC 13818-1): defines the MPEG-2 streams (cf. Chapter 4); • MPEG-2 video (ISO/IEC 13818-2): defines MPEG-2 video coding; • MPEG-2 audio (ISO/IEC 13818-3): defines MPEG-2 audio coding. MPEG-2 is, among other things, the source coding standard used by the European DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) TV broadcasting system, which is the result of the work started in 1991 by the ELG (European Launching Group), later to become the DVB committee.
