File format information for UYVY and JPG

Full NameInterleaved YUV
Mime Typeapplication/octet-stream

UYVY is a video file format that represents digital video in a specific pixel format. It stands for "U-Y-V-Y," which refers to the order in which color information is stored for each pixel in the image. In UYVY, the color information is organized as follows: U (chrominance) - Y (luminance) - V (chrominance) - Y (luminance). This format is often used for uncompressed or minimally compressed video data and is particularly common in the broadcasting and professional video editing industries. It provides high-quality color representation but requires significant storage space due to its lack of compression.

The UYVY format is also known as "4:2:2" because it samples the color information at a ratio of 4:2:2 for each pixel. This means that for every four Y (luminance) samples, there are two U (chrominance) samples and two V (chrominance) samples. This format is popular in video production because it maintains good color fidelity while reducing the data size compared to raw RGB formats, making it suitable for real-time video capture and editing applications.

UYVY files are typically large and can be challenging to work with in terms of storage and processing power due to their lack of compression. However, they are favored in situations where preserving high-quality color information is essential, such as in broadcast video production and video editing workflows, where the original source material needs to be retained at the highest quality possible for post-production work.

A JPG file is a compressed and highly efficient image file format whose aim is to store photographic-quality images using a fraction of the storage space compared to other lossy and non-lossy image compression methods available at the time.

The compression used by JPG encoders is "lossy", meaning image colors that are not perceptible to the human eye are discarded during the compression process. The removal of this color data greatly reduces the size of the final JPG file with no discernible loss in quality.

Due to their compact and high-quality format, JPG files are one of the primary image formats used by websites, digital and phone/tablet cameras, and more. This widespread support means JPG files can be edited within most popular image editing software.
