This is the display format associated with the broadcast of slow-scan television. This legacy format was used to transmit a static image given limited bandwidth through the use of specialized software.
This format is used to display bitmap images in the SunOS operating system. It uses the RLE compression algorithm and supports between 1 and 32 bits per pixel. It can be created in the Unix environment, and it is used for certain types of research projects. It is primarily used on Sun Microsystems computers.
