What is RGB?
RGB refers to the display scheme that identifies a colour based on the strength of each of the constituent colours Red, Green, and Blue. In digital systems, each of these colours is allocated 8 bits, and so can have 256 possible values. The RGB system, therefore, is a 24-bit colour code with about 16 million possible colour combinations. Video recording devices capture data in RGB format, but since transmitting in RGB format is bandwidth-intensive, the signal is compressed (with loss of quality) to other formats like Component, Composite, or S-video.
