Jay Yogeshwar and Glenn Jacobsen of Front Porch Digital discuss all issues relating to the quality of MPEG-2 compression of digital video and its subjective and/or objective assessment of absolute picture quality or its degradation due to compression. Another objective is to identify the range of compression at which the resulting video would be judged to be visually lossless, or indistinguishable from the source. The resolution of various video formats and its relationship to MPEG-2 video compression is also discussed.
