Still image formats are divided into two categories based on whether the pixels have been compressed or not. Uncompressed image file formats include TIFF and for raw image formats, TIFF-EP. The JPEG compressed image formats include the pervasive Exif and JFIF. A detailed still image format for each resolution specifies the metadata, compression applied, and the luminance chrominance subsampling.
Pixel Synergy & Forensics knowledge and experience will help navigate this challenging environment of still image file formats and help define the essential metadata components and the compression level applied to your product's image files that they are creating.
When considering a video file format it may not be obvious that the video file is a container that stores data comprised of different compression methods for the video and audio data. Specifying a file type like AVI, MOV, MP4, etc is not sufficient because the compression method is not specified and these details are needed for successful product development and the essential video quality playback interoperability. Further, video formats must take into account the compression efficiency, resulting bit rates or file size, minimum system playback requirements, and licensing costs. The expertise of this firm clarifies the implementation of the file format that specifies compression methods designed to do no harm to the pixels that are being compressed and in a non destructive manner add necessary metadata properties.
The video file formats have many subtle issues. Two examples:
