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 store images that have been divided into Y, U, and V color components. In this case, Y corresponds to brightness, and the variables U and V correspond to color information. This format is able to store more accurate color information than the RGB color space. The YUV Color System also allows you to store video files and save a particular sequence of images.
