MPEG’s existence is close to 30 years having held its first meeting in May 1988. Close to 200 standards have been developed by a membership that currently exceeds 1,000 experts (registered) and 400 experts (attending meetings) from hundreds of companies and organisations, and close to 30 countries. See the MPEG official website.
