Common Interface Format. H.261 Standard video format (352 pixels x 288 lines) at a maximum of 30 frames per second.
(Full) Common Intermediate Format. When used with ITU-T Rec. H.261, H.263 and other coding methods, the CIF describes the type of coded video frame transmitted. The CIF is 352H x 288V pixels at video frame rates of 7.5, 10, 15 and 30 fps. Note that a codec providing no more than 7.5 fps is compliant with the recommendation. If better motion handling is needed, look for a numerically greater video frame rate specification. The following table provides the range of resolutions possible under H.320 and H.323: Picture Format Luminance Pixels Video Mode H.261 H.263 SQCIF 128H x 96V QCIF 176H x 144V CIF 352H x 288V 4CIF 704H x 576V- 16CIF 1408H x 1152V- where: S = Sub, Q = Quarter, H = Horizontal pixels, V = Vertical pixels, R = Required, O = Optional and, - = Not Defined.
Common Interchance Format, as per H.261 video input
common intermediate format. The type of coded video frame transmitted when using CCITT recommendation H.261 coding methods. CIF is 30 frames per second, 325H x 288V pixels.
A term used in international trade to identify what is included in a price. CIF means cost, insurance and freight - as the price includes freight and insurance costs to a specified destination.
