======== Supported formats ========

VQMA software can analyze .YUV or .BMP files created by video decoders or captured via standard capture devices.
In combination with Unigraf capture card it can also receive YUV or RGB data directly from the card via shared memory, without any intermediate file recording. Thus, it is capable to analyze any YUV/RGB data, even the data coming from HDCP protected sources.

VQMA suports wide range of resolutions: from 192 x 108 to 4096 x 3072 in full frame image, under-scan, over-scan, letterbox and anamorphic variants.

Legacy VQMA-3 (VQTS-200) version supports only 1280x720 and 1920x1080 frame sizes.

Analysis of video files in legacy composite SD formats, such as NTSC/PAL/SECAM is possible with the previous version: VQMA-2 (VQTS-100) – NTSC/PAL Software Video Analyzer.
