Specifies the coded representation of video for digital storage media and the decoding process. Is primarily applicable to digital storage media supporting a continuous transfer rate up to about 1,5 Mbit/s, such as compact disc, digital audio tape, and magnetic hard disc, and for non-interlaced video formats having approximately 288 lines of 352 pels and picture rates around 24 Hz to 30 Hz.
