Format Conversion

This section describes Intel IPP functions that perform image color conversion without changing the color space. These functions convert pixel-order images to planar format and vice versa, change the number of channels or planes, alter sampling formats and sequences of samples and planes. Several functions additionally perform filtering - deinterlacing and upsampling.
Intel IPP format conversion functions are specified mainly in the YCbCr color space, but as they do not transform color model they may be used to perform described types of conversion for any other color spaces with decoupled luminance and chrominance coordinates (YUV type).
