QuickTime Movie

File extension .mov
File category video
Description The MOV video format is developed by Apple for QuickTime player and video clips. It is equally compatible with Microsoft and MacOS systems. MOV files can be used to store two or more than two tracks and it can be an audio, video, text, image or any other file or effect. This makes it a highly flexible file format and it is also very popular for music and video editing as well.
Technical details MOV files do actually contain various tracks which either contain the solid data or the data for editing in the form of hierarchy or atoms. Atoms might be single or in association with other atoms and they can perform either these two actions at the same time. MPV and MP4 files use the same MPEG-4 file container and they actually consider QuickTime as a standard with their support. The earlier versions of the QuickTime player only allowed the users to view the MOV files while the later versions also allowed the users to edit the data and export it as well to various systems.

CompuServe Graphics Interchange Format

File extension .gif
File category images
Description GIF, Graphics Interchange Format, is one of the most popular bitmap image formats on the World Wide Web, allowing you to share images. It also supports transparent views of various animations. Such files are used for the development of web advertising with sequentially changing pictures, as well as the graphics shell of video files. They use scan-line images with the depth parameters up to 256 colors of the RGB palette. The process of compressing files in GIF does not affect the quality in any way, as there is no loss because of compression technique. Due to this, it is possible to convert to other formats while preserving the original image properties. The extension is opened by many applications for viewing and processing images and video content installed on PCs and mobile devices regardless of OS.
Technical details The format was developed by Compuserve specialists specially for its use in the web environment, which provided wide public access to data on such files. The extension uses the LZW algorithm that allows to carry out a process, in parallel with the removal of segments containing insufficient information. This ensures the preservation of high quality pictures. Thanks to the Lempel-Ziv-Welch algorithm, the format handles graphic files with repeating sections well, in particular, images with a large number of single-color pixels horizontally. Interlaced data storage is also possible. Scan-line data is compressed to the smallest size. Reducing the number of colors required to create an image is provided by removing shades unnecessary to perform this process. The range of available GIF colors is from 2 (black and white) to 256, while reducing the number of colors leads to a decrease in the file size.
