              FFV1 Video Coding Format Version 0, 1, and 3
                       draft-ietf-cellar-ffv1-06

Abstract

   This document defines FFV1, a lossless intra-frame video encoding
   format.  FFV1 is designed to efficiently compress video data in a
   variety of pixel formats.  Compared to uncompressed video, FFV1
   offers storage compression, frame fixity, and self-description, which
   makes FFV1 useful as a preservation or intermediate video format.
