This is a format that is used to store RAW photos on Sony digital cameras without the use of compression. It contains the complete set of information that was captured by the camera's sensors through the lens when shooting with minimum adjustments. The opportunities for post-editing depend on the camera model and lens. ARW files can be created and edited in the ArtStudio Image software.
This is an image format that can be transmitted over analog broadcasting channels. It has a 16-bit structure, and it is transmitted using a three-component YUV color model. One component is responsible for brightness, and the remaining two account for differences in color.
