Uncompressed video file format for high quality. Often used when editing video before exporting in other formats.

Files sizes can be very large.

25

What are the properties, use and limitations of flv?

Flash video file, providing smaller file sizes. May be used with both video and animation products.

Not as widely supported.

26

What is lossless compression?

This is where no information is discarded or thrown away when saving the file. It retains all of the original information and quality but file sizes are higher.

27

What is lossy compression?

This can have multiple levels and uses algorithms to discard some of the original information in order to reduce the size of the file. This is useful for web use or to minimise the required storage capacity but at the expense of quality.
