USB Video Class (UVC) is a USB specification which defines and standardizes video streaming functionality on the Universal Serial Bus. USB video streaming devices (which is a classification that covers a broad spectrum of possible devices; such as webcams, digital camcorders, tv tuners, ... ) that are compliant to the UVC specification are referred to as "UVC devices". A primary benefit brought about by the UVC specification is that UVC compliant peripherals (i.e. "UVC devices") can all be managed by a single generic driver. Under Linux, UVC compliant devices are supported by uvcvideo, the Linux UVC device driver.
