YUV is a color model and coding system that is often used as part of color image processing systems.
For a color image or video, human perception is encoded in this color space, providing a reduced bandwidth for the representation of colors, thereby hiding transmission errors or compression defects more effectively from human perception than with direct RGB display.
Y is the luma component (brightness), U and V are the chromaticity (color) components. Apostrophes (') indicate gamma compression. "Luminance" stands for physical-linear space luminosity, while "luma" stands for non-linear perceptual luminosity.
