Pictures are divided into slices.
A slice consists of an arbitrary number of successive macroblocks (going left to right), but is typically an entire row of macroblocks. A slice does not extend beyond one row.
The slice header carries address information that allows the Huffman decoder to resynchronize at slice boundaries.
