Convert DAT to GIF

DAT to GIF Converter Software converts DAT files to GIF in batch. GIF is playable in any web browsers. So you can put DAT video on your website or blog by converting DAT to GIF. DAT to GIF Converter Software is an all-in-one video and audio converter. The software also supports common file format such as 3GP, OGM, DVD Video, FLV, H.264 AVC, etc. It could convert 3G2 to Xvid, VOB to MPEG, MOV to 3GP, H264 to AVI, M4V to DivX, and so on.

DAT to GIF Converter Software supports batch conversion that enables you convert bulk DAT files to GIF at a time. The software is fully compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.

What is DAT?
Video CD (VCD) MPEG-1 movie file. 352x240 (or SIF) resolution was chosen because it is half the vertical, and half the horizontal resolution of NTSC video. In a VCD, the audio and video streams are multiplexed in an MPEG program stream (MPEG-PS) container. Video specifications: Codec: MPEG-1; Resolution: 352x240 (NTSC), 352x288 (PAL/SECAM); Aspect Ratio: 4:3 (NTSC), 4:3 (PAL/SECAM); Framerate: 29.97 or 23.976 frames per second (NTSC), 25 frames per second (PAL/SECAM); Bitrate: 1,150 kilobits per second; Rate Control: constant bitrate. Although many DVD video players support playback of VCDs, VCD video is only compatible with the DVD-Video standard if encoded at 29.97 frames per second or 25 frames per second. Windows Media Player prior to version 9 and QuickTime Player do not support playing VCD directly, though they can play the .DAT files (stored under MPEGAV for video and audio data) reliably, and plugins were available. Video CDs are not popular in the US, Canada and Europe, so its support is limited among mainstream software. Overall picture quality is intended to be comparable to VHS video. By compressing both the video and audio streams, a VCD is able to hold 74 minutes of picture and sound information, nearly the same duration as a standard 79 minute audio CD. Before the advent of DVD and Blu-ray, the Video CD (abbreviated as VCD, and also known as View CD, Compact Disc digital video) became the first format for distributing films on standard 120 mm optical discs. Similarly, the audio frequency range is limited to those sounds most clearly heard by the human ear. Poorly compressed VCD video can sometimes be lower quality than VHS video, but VCD exhibits block artifacts rather than analog noise, like VHS does, and does not deteriorate further with each use.

GIF SampleWhat is GIF?
GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is a creation of CompuServe and is used to store multiple bitmap images in a single file for exchange between platforms and systems. In terms of number of files in existence, GIF is perhaps the most widely used format for storing multibit graphics and image data. Even a quick peek into the graphics file section of most BBSs and file archives seems to prove this true. Many of these are high-quality images of people, landscapes, cars, astrophotographs, and anthropometric gynoidal data (you guess what that is). Shareware libraries and BBSs are filled with megabytes of GIF images. GIF images can also be animated and saved as "animated GIFs," which are often used to display basic animations on websites. They may also include transparent pixels, which allow them to blend with different color backgrounds. However, pixels in a GIF image must be either fully transparent or fully opaque, so the transparency cannot be faded like a .PNG image. GIFs are suitable for sharp-edged line art (such as logos) with a limited number of colors. This takes advantage of the format's lossless compression, which favors flat areas of uniform color with well defined edges. GIFs can be used to store low-color sprite data for games. GIFs can be used for small animations and low-resolution film clips. The first kind of compression that GIF uses is called a colormap. Instead of allowing the image to contain all 16 million colors, GIF restricts the image to a maximum of, say, 256 out of the 16 million (the number of colors in the colormap can be varied). It can be any 256 out of the 16 million, so there is no loss of richness of possible colors. But no more than 256 distinct colors can be used simultaneously in any one image. The colors are stored in a colormap table, and the color for each pixel is specified as an index into the table. So instead of using 24 bits for each pixel, a file only contains an 8 bit index. (A 24-bit display of a modern computer can display all 16 million colors simultaneously, so multiple GIF images with different colormap tables can be simultaneously displayed with good color fidelity.)
