A codec for computer video developed by Intel.
a codec developed by Intel, which allows temporal and spatial compression as well as data rate limiting for use on CD-ROM projects.
Video compression/decompression (codec) format developed by Intel(tm) for its ActionMedia II capture card's i750 chip, and licensed for use on the MAC, Windows (in Video for Windows), and OS/2. It is based on a VQ (vector quantization) algorithm, a variation of DVI-RTV (Digital Video Interactive-Real Time Video). (Intel's stand-alone version is called PC Video.) Indeo combines both lossless and lossy algorithms, and provides a data compression ratio of 10 bytes to 1 (10:1). The algorithms assume the videomaker wants a video window inside a computer screen, rather than a full-screen picture. Playback is at 15 frames per second (fps) in a quarter-screen window of 320 (h) by 240 (v) pixels, and with a color depth of 9 bits per pixel. Indeo can be played back by software and with Intel hardware. It is designed to be hardware-scalable to produce the best image supported by the hardware it's running on. "It's a little slower than Cinpak at playback, but offers real-time capture and compression and high-quality output almost as good as Cinpak." Indeo version 3.2 should provide playback at a resolution of 640 by 480 pixels and 30 fps.
