About the AVCHD
High-Definition Television Format

AVCHD

 
The AVCHD format (Advanced Video Coding High-Definition) is a high-definition format originally developed for HD video cameras which has been adapted for and generally accepted as the high-definition television format for widescreen televisions worldwide (although not all consumer Blu-ray Disc players support the format; check your manufacturer’s documentation for confirmation).

The AVCHD video format definition is for up to 60 interlaced frames per second, 1080 resolution lines per video frame (1920 x 1080 or 1440 x 1080), compressed in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video compression codec.

Audio formats supported within the format are compressed Dolby Digital (AC-3) surround sound, and compressed linear PCM stereo and mono sound. Some Blu-ray Disc players support playback of uncompressed DTS-HD 7.1 surround sound outside the AVCHD video format.
