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.

Since PNG is lossless and usually smaller than TGA or TIFF; PNG sequences are quite common when rending an animation sequence from a render farm when the destination format is a video codec that decodes to the standard 8 bit (per channel) color.
