What is MJPEG?
Joint Photographic Experts Group
MJPEG, short for Motion JPEG, is a video compression format that stands out for its simplicity and versatility. Unlike other video formats that use complex algorithms to compress video data, MJPEG takes a straightforward approach. It compresses each frame of a video as a separate JPEG image, resulting in excellent image quality with minimal compression artifacts.
One of MJPEG's unique characteristics is its suitability for editing and frame-by-frame analysis. Since each frame is individually compressed, you can easily access and edit specific frames without affecting others, making it a valuable tool for video professionals and enthusiasts. While MJPEG may not be the most space-efficient format due to its frame-by-frame compression, its straightforward encoding and decoding process make it a reliable choice for certain applications, including video surveillance and medical imaging. Its simplicity and quality make MJPEG a format worth considering when precision and ease of editing are top priorities.
