UCSUCS is the abbrivation of Universal Character Set.
It is a fixed length encoding method. As it is a fixed encoding it will always use the number of bytes assigned, even when not needed.
UCS-2It encodes a character using 2 bytes (16 bits), however it was replaced by UTF-16.
UCS-4Is actually a 31 bit encoding form that represents every character by 4 byts (32 bits) and is a fixed-length encoding. UTF-32 is a subset of UCS-4
