VCD, DVD and Photo VCD
Video CD, or VCD, is a digital movie format. It's basically a primitive version of DVD. A Video CD is a kind of CD. It looks the same as a music CD or a CD-ROM, except that instead of music or software, it holds movies, using compressed MPEG-1 video. Its resolution is 352x240 (NTSC) or 352x288 (PAL), which is roughly comparable to VHS. VCD uses an MPEG-1 encoding standard to store the video and audio. A VCD can be played on almost all standalone DVD Players and on all computers with a DVD-ROM or CD-ROM drive with the help of a VCD decoder software. VCD 2.0 was introduced in 1995 and adds hi-resolution stills, fast-forward, and rewind functions to the original specifications; SuperVCD (SVCD) uses either high bit rate MPEG-1 or variable bit rate MPEG-2 for the use of CD-R drives instead of DVD drives.
DVD once stood for digital video disc or digital versatile disc, but now it just stands for DVD -- the next generation of optical disc storage technology. DVD is essentially a bigger, faster CD that can hold cinema-like video, better-than-CD audio, and computer data.
Photo VCD is not a standard by itself, this term is used when a group of image files are placed on a VCD connected to TV and displayed in a format like a slideshow. There are two ways of doing this with VCD 2.0 technology: one is to import the pictures into a video editing program, adding optional music and transition effects as desired. The time between pictures is decided by the filmmaker, not the viewer. The result is output as a VCD or SVCD motion video file and authored like any motion video to VCD or SVCD. The resolution is limited to VCD 352x240 (NTSC), 352x288 (PAL) or SVCD 480x480 (NTSC), 480x576 (PA)L which may appear grainy or low resolution compared to the original pictures. Another way is to author a photo VCD 2.0 disc encoding each picture as a still MPEG at 704x480 (NTSC), 704x576 (PAL). This allows better resolution but (probably) lacks transition effects. The resulting collection of still MPEG images can be authored with a program that automates the whole process from images to disc.
MPEG , MPEG Picture Structure and SMPTE
The Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) develops standards for digital video and digital audio compression. It operates under the auspices of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). To use MPEG video files, you need a personal computer with sufficient processor speed, internal memory, and hard disk space to handle and play the typically large MPEG file (which has a file name suffix of .mpg). You also need an MPEG viewer or client software that plays MPEG files. You can download shareware or commercial MPEG players from a number of sites on the Web.
MPEG picture structure
A MPEG Picture consists of a field or a frame. It's identified in the bit stream by the picture header that specifies the picture structure and the picture coding type. There are three (3) types of MPEG picture as the following:
Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) is a professional association for enhancing the profession and contributing to the technology of motion picture and television engineering. The SMPTE establishes standards, practices, and guidelines for the motion picture and television industry, including the audio that goes with the motion images. The SMPTE publishes the SMPTE Journal, a monthly. Membership is open to anyone who is interested.
