  Q: Why is your footage compressed with Photo-JPEG?  

A: Photo JPEG has been the industry standard for many years for the stock footage industry. This is because this compression is the least destructive codec and maintain a high quality image, while keeping the file size small. This allow us to offer downloads as well as fit many clips in on CD-R or DVD-R. Please note that analysis of histograms have shown only a 3% difference between the original clip and the JPEG version. Side by side comparison show no visible difference between the the videos.
