Convert DAT to PNG Sequence
PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a bitmapped image
format that employs lossless data compression. PNG was created to improve upon
and replace GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) as an image-file format not requiring
a patent license. The initialism PNG can also be interpreted as a recursive initialism
for "PNG's Not GIF".
DAT to PNG Converter Software converts DAT to PNG sequence files.
The software captures every frame of DAT video clips, and then exports the
frames to a serial of separated PNG files. You can also convert DAT to other
image formats such as BMP, JPG, and TIFF.
And, you can set output frame rate, and output image size with the software. The
output PNG files look something like this.
The software is also a video and audio converter that supports common formats
and portable devices such as H.264, M4V, OGM, AIFF, JPG image sequence, FLV, WAV, etc.
The software could convert EVO to MP2, MPEG to 3G2, RM to AC3, XVID to 3GP, MP4 to WMA,
and so on.
DAT to PNG Software supports batch conversion and, is compatible
with 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. Video CDs are not popular in the US, Canada and Europe, so
its support is limited among mainstream software. 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 stream from a Video
CD (VCD) disc; typically saved in MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 format; contains the
actual video data that is played from the VCD. Audio specifications: Codec:
MPEG-1 Audio Layer II; Frequency: 44,100 hertz (44.1 kHz); Output: Dual
channel or stereo; Bitrate: 224 kilobits per second; Rate Control: Constant
bitrate. By the early 1990s engineers were able to digitize video signals,
greatly improving storage efficiency. Because this new format could hold
83 minutes of audio and video, releasing movies on compact discs finally
became a reality. This format was named Video CD or VCD. Windows Vista
added native support of VCD along with DVD-Video and can launch the preferred
application upon insertion. 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. The disc format is also supported using Windows Media Player Classic
variations and VLC Media Player both support VCDs natively. VCDs are playable
in dedicated VCD players, most DVD-Video players, personal computers, and
some video game consoles.
What is PNG?
PNG stands for Portable Network Graphics. It's a lossless bitmap image
format that is popular on the World Wide Web and elsewhere. PNG was largely
developed to deal with some of the shortcomings of the GIF format and allows
storage of images with greater color depth and other important information.
On most images, except for the above cases, GIF will be bigger than indexed
PNG. The PNG format was introduced in 1994, after the GIF and JPEG formats
had already been around for several years. Therefore, PNG includes many
of the benefits of both formats. For example, PNG images use lossless compression
like GIF files, so they do not have any blurring or other artifacts that
may appear in JPEG images. The PNG format also supports 24-bit color like
the JPEG format, so a PNG image may include over 16 million colors. This
is a significant difference between GIF and PNG, since GIF images can include
a maximum of 256 colors. PNG images are less widely supported by older
browsers. In particular, IE6 has limited support for PNG. As users adopt
newer browsers, this becomes less of an issue. PNG files nearly always
use the file extension PNG or png and are assigned the MIME media type
image/png (approved on October 14 1996). JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts
Group) format can produce a smaller file than PNG for photographic (and
photo-like) images, since JPEG uses a lossy encoding method specifically
designed for photographic image data, which is typically dominated by soft,
low-contrast transitions, and an amount of noise or similar irregular structures.
Using PNG instead of a high-quality JPEG for such images would result in
a large increase in filesize with negligible gain in quality. By contrast,
when storing images that contain text, line art, or graphics - images with
sharp transitions and large areas of solid color - the PNG format can compress
image data more than JPEG can, and without the noticeable visual artifacts
which JPEG produces around high-contrast areas. Where an image contains
both sharp transitions and photographic parts a choice must be made between
the two effects. JPEG does not support transparency.
