I Frame

Acronym:Intra picture frame

Intra picture frame, or I-frame, compression is a shorthand way of referring to intraframe compression. I-frame compression, however, can also be used as the basis for interframe compression, if predictive (P frames) can reference a keyframe (which is always an I frame) and then predict movement across multiple P frames.
