What is ASF?
ASF stands for Advanced Systems Format. Audio and/or Video content compressed
with a wide variety of codecs can be stored in an ASF file and played back
with the Windows Media Player (provided the appropriate codecs are installed),
streamed with Windows Media Services or optionally packaged with Windows
Media Rights Manager. They often contain Windows Media Audio (.WMA) or
Windows Media Video (.WMV) data. Rather, it defines a standardized, extensible
file container that is not dependent on a particular operating system or
communication protocol, or on a particular method (such as HTML or MPEG
4) used to compose the data stream in the file. Files of ASF format support
playback from digital media servers, HTTP servers, and local storage devices.
Windows Media Audio (WMA) and Windows Media Video (WMV) are the most common
file types contained in an ASF file. Instead of specifying how (i.e. with
which codec) the video or audio should be encoded, ASF does more in the
structure of the video/audio stream which is quite similar to the function
performed by the AVI, QuickTime, or Ogg container formats. The Advanced
Systems Format (ASF) is the file format used by Windows Media. The format
does not specify how (i.e. with which codec) the video or audio should
be encoded; it just specifies the structure of the video/audio stream.
ASF is most commonly used for streaming media purposes. An ASF file consists
of three objects: a Header object containing information about the file
itself, a Data object containing the media streams, and an optional Index
object that can help support random access to data within the file. One
of the objectives of ASF was to support playback from digital media servers,
HTTP servers, and local storage devices such as hard disk drives.
What is GIF?
The Graphics Interchange Format (better known by its acronym GIF) is a
bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since
come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support
and portability. The Graphics Interchange Format is defined in terms of
blocks and sub-blocks which contain relevant parameters and data used in
the reproduction of a graphic. A GIF Data Stream is a sequence of protocol
blocks and sub-blocks representing a collection of graphics. In general,
the graphics in a Data Stream are assumed to be related to some degree,
and to share some control information; it is recommended that encoders
attempt to group together related graphics in order to minimize hardware
changes during processing and to minimize control information overhead.
For the same reason, unrelated graphics or graphics which require resetting
hardware parameters should be encoded separately to the extent possible.
The linked lists used by the image data and the extension blocks consist
of series of sub-blocks, each sub-block beginning with a byte giving the
number of subsequent data bytes in the sub-block (1 to 255). The series
of sub-blocks is terminated by an empty sub-block (a 0 byte). A GIF image
can contain 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 or 256 colors which are stored in
a color palette or color lookup table within the image file. Each color
in the GIF color table is described in RGB values, with each value having
a range of 0 to 255. CMYK colors are not possible in GIF. Although the
GIF format has access to over 16.8 million colors, only a maximum of 256
can be referenced within a single GIF image. While this limited palette
keeps down file size and is perfectly acceptable for on-screen viewing,
it leads to posterized images when they are printed. Most preflighting
tools like PitStop can generate a warning when they encounter images with
a fixed color palette.
