This paper presents a comparison of YUV color video formats using the H.264 video compression standard. The goal of this paper is to determine the best color video format for rate-distortion quality. This is a point of interest due to wireless video transmission quality and bandwidth limitations. The results show that for 1080p video, the YUV 4:2:0 video with a chrominance quantization parameter offset of zero is among the best performing color video format in terms of rate-distortion quality for three different levels of compression and two different entropy encodings.
