The LEAD MPEG-2 Encoder and LEAD MPEG-2 Decoder provide everything needed to compress and decompress MPEG-2 videos in .NET (C# & VB) and C/C++ applications. The codecs support several levels (source formats) that range from Limited Definition (VCR quality) to full HDTV. In addition, the LEAD MPEG-2 codecs support several different profiles, which offer different sets of compression tools that make up the coding system.
