.YUV File Association 2
Image created in the YUV format, which splits color across Y, U, and V components; stores the brightness (luminance) as the Y value, and the color (chrominance) as U and V values; can be used for storing color information more accurately than the direct RGB representation.
The YUV format is often written Y'UV.
