Multimedia, AV Dirac is an advanced royalty-free video compression format designed for a wide range of uses, from delivering low-resolution web content to broadcasting HD and beyond, to near-lossless studio editing. The v1.0.0 version was released yesterday, and the new VLC version supports playback of .ts/.drc Dirac files.

In today's workflows, unless you do VFX where frame-by-frame lossless images are read/generated by these tools, that is not needed. There are good digital intermediate formats for editing/archiving, like Cineform.
