When MPEG-4 is mentioned in video surveillance applications, it is usually referring to MPEG-4
Part 2, also known as MPEG-4 Visual. Like all MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group) standards,
it is a licensed standard, so users must pay a license fee per monitoring station. MPEG-4
supports low-bandwidth applications and applications that require high quality images, no
limitations in frame rate and with virtually unlimited bandwidth.
