AVC Intra

AVC Intra: A common video codec developed by Panasonic in compliance with the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC standard. Like AVC as defined above, AVC Intra is an efficient lossy compression algorithm that yields a high quality video signal with minimal visual loss. Although this is a ubiquitous format today, it is not an open access format as it does have numerous software patents associated with it that can be a cause for concern regarding future access.
