New Mxpeg Compression Standard Developed
Compared to the motion JPEG standard (Joint Picture Expert Group), “MxPEG” requires only one third of the network bandwidth for data transmission, while still providing very high image quality.

Network camera manufacturer Mobotix developed the licence-free MxPEG technology to transmit the live images its cameras produce without generating any appreciable network load (1.5 Mbps) for even high-resolution quality (12 images per second, 640 x 480 pixels, 70 percent JPEG quality).
At this data rate, the video stream occupies less than two percent of a standard computer network (100 megabits). As a result, large-format video streams can be transmitted easily via existing networks or the Internet.
