MPEG-H is a group of international standards under development by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). It has various "parts" – each of which can be considered a separate standard. These include a media transport protocol standard, a video compression standard, an audio compression standard, a digital file format container standard, three reference software packages, three conformance testing standards, and related technologies and technical reports.[1][2][3][4][5] The group of standards is formally known as ISO/IEC 23008 – High efficiency coding and media delivery in heterogeneous environments.[1][2][3][4][5] Development of the standards began around 2010, and the first fully approved standard in the group was published in 2013.[2] Most of the standards in the group have been revised or amended several times to add additional extended features since their first edition.

MPEG-H consists of the following parts:[3][6]
