Reducing the burden with color subsampling: Digital Media Foundations

Cameras receive an enormous amount of visual information—far more than we need to reproduce a satisfactory image.

As we have less accurate perception of color than brightness, it's standard practice to discard at least half the color information in every frame of video.
