Netflix may be known for its video streaming service but the company also deals with a lot of images and because of this, it has released an update to a new image file format called AVIF (AV1 Image File Format) which it believes can replace JPEGs.

The video streaming giant has even open sourced the AVIF framework to allow others to compare it to existing image codecs in terms of performance and compression efficiency.
