YUV Sampling

YUV Sampling: (Chroma Subsampling) A type of image reduction whereby the colors (chroma information) are compressed to a greater extent than brightness (luma information). This is done because the human eye is less adept at distinguishing color differences than luminance, allowing for a lower-resolution image without visual difference. [ Video Glossary ]
