For the Digital Video Machine, Digital Binloop and A/V Binloop
MPEG (or MPG) stands for Motion Picture Experts Group, the organization that codified the audio/video compression scheme used in the Digital Video Machine and A/V Binloop. Many encoding systems produce MPG files, but not all MPG files may be played on the Digital Video Machine and Binloop. Many MPG files are designed for playback in a small window on a PC, or for transfer over the internet. These MPG files are generally of very low resolution at slow frame rates.The Digital Video Machine and Binloop are designed to accept MPG files encoded at a resolution of 720 x 480 (NTSC) or 720 x 576 (PAL). They can play MPG files encoded at bit rates up to 15 Megabits per second. Since higher bit rates equate to better picture quality, we encourage you to encode your video at the highest bit rate supported.
