YUV

The method of color encoding for transmitting color video images while maintaining compatibility with black-and-white video. Uses less bandwidth than the three separate video signals in an RGB video transmission. Consists of two major components: luminance (Y), which corresponds to the brightness of an image pixel, and chroma, chrominance (UV or CrCb), which corresponds to the color of an image pixel.
