YUV is a color encoding system used in digital video and image processing to represent and transmit color information separately from brightness or luminance. It is named after the three components it comprises: Y for luminance (brightness) and U and V for chrominance (color information). In a YUV file, the image data is divided into these three components, which allows for efficient compression and transmission of video and images. This separation of luminance and chrominance helps reduce file size and simplify various video processing tasks, such as compression, editing, and transmission.

The Y component represents the grayscale or black-and-white information of the image, and it carries most of the image's visual detail. The U and V components represent the color information. U represents the difference between the blue and the luminance, while V represents the difference between the red and the luminance. By storing color information separately, YUV can achieve better compression ratios and make it easier to process video and images without affecting the perceived visual quality significantly.

YUV files are commonly used in video codecs like MPEG and H.264, where efficient compression and decompression are crucial for streaming and storing video content. Additionally, YUV color space is widely used in video editing and color correction, as it allows for precise adjustments to luminance and chrominance independently, enhancing the overall image and video quality.
