MPEG2-TS, short for MPEG-2 Transport Stream, is a widely used standard for transmitting audio, video, and data over various networks. It is commonly employed in broadcast systems, such as cable and satellite TV, as well as in streaming services.
This format is designed to efficiently carry multiple streams of content simultaneously. It segments data into packets, each containing a small portion of the media, along with synchronization and error correction information. These packets are then transmitted over the network, enabling efficient delivery and synchronization of audio and video streams.
MPEG2-TS supports various video codecs, including MPEG-2 and H.264, and audio codecs like MP3 and AAC. It also allows for the inclusion of metadata, subtitles, and other additional data, enhancing the overall multimedia experience.
Due to its robustness, flexibility, and wide compatibility, MPEG2-TS remains a fundamental technology in the broadcasting and streaming industries, ensuring high-quality content delivery to millions of viewers worldwide.
