The Media Sub-Committee appointed Professor Gao Wen from the Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences as the Head of Delegation to formally participate in the work of the International MPEG Expert Group, thus changing the situation in which China only listened to other's proposals or expressed some opinions in the aspect of MPEG standard formulation in the early days.
