Y211 yuv pixel format


I have yet to find anything that will output Y211 ! The format looks very much like the missing YUV 4:2:2 ordering but Y samples are only taken on every second pixel. Think of it as a half width 4:2:2 image and double the width on display.

  Horizontal Vertical
Y Sample Period 2 1
V Sample Period 4 1
U Sample Period 4 1

Effective bits per pixel : 8

Positive biHeight implies top-down image (top line first)
