HDV is a format for recording of high-definition video on DV cassette tape. The format was originally developed by JVC and supported by Sony, Canon and Sharp. HDV video and audio are encoded in digital form, using lossy compression. Video is encoded with the MPEG-2 codec. Stereo audio is encoded with the MPEG-1 Layer 2 codec. The compressed audio and video are multiplexed into a MPEG transport stream (.ts), which is typically recorded onto magnetic tape, but can also be stored in a computer file with format (.m2t). Two major versions of HDV are HDV 720p and HDV 1080i. The former is used by JVC and is informally known as HDV1. The latter is preferred by Sony and Canon and is sometimes referred to as HDV2.
