MPC Specification That Currently Affects Multimedia

The following sections describe those MPC standards that are still current or have had a significant impact on decisions made about current technology.

A Standard for Managing Compressed Data    Multimedia technology requires large volumes of data, so data compression becomes an important concern. The CPU and/or the software on a PC must be able to handle compressed video and audio data according to a data compression standard called MPEG, which is part of the MPC specifications. MPEG is an international standard for data compression for motion pictures. Developed by the Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG), it tracks movement from one frame to the next, and only stores what changes, rather than compressing individual frames. MPEG is a type of lossy compression. Lossy compression methods work by dropping unnecessary data, hence the idea of the loss of data or “lossy” compression. MPEG compression can yield a compression ratio of 100:1 for full-motion video (30 frames per second, or 30 fps).

Compressing and later decompressing data is called CODEC 

follow the Pin 1 rule: match the edge color on the cable to Pin 1 on both the adapter card and the drive.

Some CD-ROM drives come with an audio cord that attaches the interface card to a sound card, which then receives sound input directly from the CD-ROM. Attach the audio cord if you have a sound card. Don’t make the mistake of attaching a miniature power cord designed for a 3 ½ inch disk drive coming from the power supply to the audio input connector on the sound card. The connections appear to fit, but you will probably destroy the drive by doing so.

Some drives have a good connection, with one end of the ground cable attaching to the computer case. Follow the directions included with the drive.

Verify Power to the Drive

Check all connections, and turn on the power. Press the eject button on the front of the drive. If it works, then you know power is getting to the drive.

 

Install the Device Driver for DOS

To operate in a DOS environment, a CD-ROM drive needs a device driver that is loaded from the CONFIG.SYS file. The driver interfaces with the drive and with a real-mode program called the Microsoft CD-ROM extension for DOS (MSCDEX.EXE), which must be loaded from AUTOEXE.BAT. Both of these programs will come on a floppy disk with the CD-ROM drive. Run the installation program that is also on the disk. It copies the files to the hard drive and edits both the CONFIG.SYS and the AUTOEXEC.BAT files. Restart the computer so that the changes will take effect. If there are problems accessing the drive after you have restarted, check the items listed under “Troubleshooting Guidelines”.

83% Eligible Taxpayers Evade Payments In Nigeria – Report

According to a taxpayer perception poll performed by the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) for 2021, only approximately 13% of Nigerian taxpayers, particularly those in the informal sector of the economy, are unlikely to evade tax payment in Nigeria.

83% Eligible Taxpayers Evade Payments In Nigeria – Report

“A bigger majority of workers in the sector, 83 percent, are inclined to avoid tax payments because they do not feel tax officials have the authority to compel people pay taxes,” according to the survey.

The survey demonstrated the public’s mistrust of the government.

 

According to the research, the informal sector in Nigeria accounts for around 65 percent of employment and a large percentage of the economy’s national Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

 

“Lack of trust in government was fostered by pervasive official corruption, which resulted in widespread poverty and infrastructure deficits.

“The social contract between the government and its citizens, as represented by the quality of public services and the willingness of the public to pay or evade taxes.” The research stated that “a perceived weak social compact between citizens and the government continues to jeopardize the legitimacy of taxes.”
