The cable television network of the Peking University has broadcast a three-dimensional program that uses independently-researched and developed encoders and decoders with intellectual property rights wholly owned by China, the Audio Video Coding Standard Group of China (AVS) reported yesterday.

The AVS was established by the Science and Technology Department under the former Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in June 2002.

With the mandate of satisfying the demands of the rapidly-growing information industry, AVS is committed to producing technical standards of high quality for compression, decompression, processing and representation of digital audio and video. To this end it has provided digital audio-video equipment and systems with highly-efficient and economical coding/decoding technologies.

AVS can be applied in a wide variety of significant information sectors including high-resolution digital broadcast, high-density laser digital storage media, wireless broadband multimedia communication and Internet broadband stream media.
