Cross luminance artefact

From Encyclopedia PRO

Jump to: navigation, search

An artefact of encoded video, also known as dot crawl or cross-luminance. It occurs in the video picture around the edges of highly saturated colours as a continuous series of crawling dots and is a result of colour information being confused as luminance information by the decoder circuits.

Cross Luminance Artefact occurs when the video decoder incorrectly interprets chroma information (color) to be high-frequency luma information (brightness).
