ISO/IEC 13818-1:2013

Information technology -- Generic coding of moving pictures and associated audio information -- Part 1: Systems

ISO/IEC 13818-1:2013 specifies the system layer of the coding. It was developed principally to support the combination of the video and audio coding methods defined in ISO/IEC 13818-2 and ISO/IEC 13818-3. The system layer supports six basic functions:

  1. the synchronization of multiple compressed streams on decoding;
  2. the interleaving of multiple compressed streams into a single stream;
  3. the initialization of buffering for decoding start up;
  4. continuous buffer management;
  5. time identification;
  6. multiplexing and signalling of various components in a system stream.
