**Can anyone explain the different types of image data **

Like Raw, Compressed, Depth, Theora

What is the difference between them btw.

Hi @sachinkum123567,

These are all different ways of transporting image data in ROS:

  • Raw means the image as it is without any manipulation.
  • Compressed and Compressed Depth involved some compression of the raw image data to facilitate faster transport.
  • Theora is another form of compression suitable for live video feeds.
