    Huh? i would say that the codec technologies are becomng more and more important as we move to a convergence world where what is important is not the storage but the transmission of information (between devices, through networks, ... simply because what is limitating is still the bandwith as we want to transmit more different programs or information).

    Codecs in the MPEG family become more and more universal and they are the key for mobility!

    Without them, we would not have now numeric radios, and TV broadcasts. Note also that almost all programs are produced using codecs. Their differences are in the level of rendered quality (and also in their capacity to support protection).
