China To Develop Audio & Video Frequency Standard

Zhongguancun AVS Development Base is saying that part of the AVS standard, a technical standard for coding and decoding audio and video frequency has been completed by Chinese scientists and related enterprises at home and abroad.

It is hoped that, with this new standard, domestic enterprises will no longer have to worry about being controlled by foreign enterprises on account of technology and patent costs.

China's developing of the AVS standard has brought about dramatic changes–as early as November 2003, MPEGLA, an agent of the MPEG standard that has been widely adopted in China, declared that it would be changing its strategy, collecting $0.25 for each piece of coding and decoding equipment instead of charging according to time.

Large scale industrialization of the AVS standard has been initiated and AVS technology-based TV top boxes are expected to be produced in large quantities by the end of 2005.
