(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.
