With the lightning speed progress of the Internet and the vast numbers of users switching to broadband or higher, and the introduction of devices such as the iPhone, video has improved by leaps and bounds.
It’s amazing to think how far we’ve come since 1984, when the very first digital video format (H.120) was developed. Even though it just had a max resolution of 176 x 144 and a pithy 2 Mbit/s bitrate, this breakthrough set the stage for digital video. Because of innovations that started with the H.120 digital video format, we are now able to stream very high quality videos and movies over the World Wide Web (in high definition).
