A video codec that employs a more efficient compression method than previous codecs, such as MPEG-2. It is the current international standard for video compression, adopted by both the ITU-T (International Telecommunication Union Telecommunication Standardization Sector) and ISO/IEC (International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission). H.264 is said to achieve compression levels over two times better than those of MPEG-2, making it suitable for a wide range of applications, from low bit rate applications for mobile phones to high-definition class high bit rate applications.
A method of representing video that records the luminance signal and corresponding color signal for a single scan line in a 4:2 ratio, ensuring excellent color fidelity and limiting color degradation during multiple encoding and decoding steps.
