    FEATURES The MPEG2 Image Delivery System delivers image data as streaming data to a network such as a LAN. This system consists of the encoder that converts an analog video signal (NTSC) to the digital data (MPEG2), and the decoder that converts the digital data (MPEG2) to the analog video signal (NTSC).
