The Moving Picture Coding Experts Group (MPEG) was established by Leonardo Chiariglione in January 1988.

The MPEG-2 Standard is defined in ISO-13818, which is comprised of the following documents (some of them are also published by ITU):

  • ISO-13818-2 aka ITU-T H.262 
    Video
  • ISO-13818-3 
    Audio
  • ISO-13818-4 
    Conformance testing (read if you want to write a multiplexer or an encoder)
  • ISO-13818-6 
    Extensions for DSM-CC (Digital Storage Media Command and Control). The DSM-CC specification covers several different aspects of broadband service delivery. One of these includes the "Download" Protocol, which has several variations, including DSM-CC ObjectCarousel, which is used to transmit interactive multimedia information, such as is the case with MHP or MHEG-5 applications, and other data.
  • ISO-13818-7 
    Advanced Audio Coding (AAC)

For a full list of the MPEG-2 standard's documents, see the ISO website (link provided below).
