Intraframe Compression

Intraframe compression takes place within a single picture, or frame, ignoring any compression savings that might be generated by the same image occuring before or after the current frame. M-JPEG, a motion-based compression using the still image JPEG compression independently for each and every frame, is one of the more widely used video intraframe compressions. One benefit is the ability to compress and stream a single frame very quickly, but the frames will never be compressed as well as interframe compression schemes that take into account temporal compression.
