What Is ISO

An ISO image is an archive file (also known as a disc image) of an optical disc in a format defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). As with any other archive, an ISO image includes all the data of files contained on the archived Blu-ray disk or CD, or any other disc format. They are stored in an uncompressed format, unlike AVI, WMV, MKV, MP4 format. Any CD or DVD can be archived by .ISO format. It is a true digital copy of the original.

The most important feature of an ISO image is that it can be easily rendered or burned to a BD, DVD or CD by using media authoring or disc burning software. It can also be opened using any file archiver or Daemon Tools. ISO burning is now typically a native feature of modern home and business computer operating systems.
