15		<para>This is a multi-planar format, as opposed to a packed format.
16	The three components are separated into three sub- images or planes.
17	
18	The Y plane is first. The Y plane has one byte per pixel. The Cb data
19	constitutes the second plane which is half the width and half
20	the height of the Y plane (and of the image). Each Cb belongs to four
21	pixels, a two-by-two square of the image. For example,
22	Cb<subscript>0</subscript> belongs to Y'<subscript>00</subscript>,
23	Y'<subscript>01</subscript>, Y'<subscript>10</subscript>, and
24	Y'<subscript>11</subscript>. The Cr data, just like the Cb plane, is
25	in the third plane. </para>
26	
27		<para>If the Y plane has pad bytes after each row, then the Cb
28	and Cr planes have half as many pad bytes after their rows. In other
29	words, two Cx rows (including padding) is exactly as long as one Y row
30	(including padding).</para>
31	
32		<para><constant>V4L2_PIX_FMT_NV12M</constant> is intended to be
33	used only in drivers and applications that support the multi-planar API,
34	described in <xref linkend="planar-apis"/>. </para>
