Summary: Your smart TV/media player couldn’t open Sony HDV video source? Don’t worry
about this. Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac can help you convert Sony HDV video to smart TV/media player supported video format quickly and easily.
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. Conceived as an affordable high definition format for digital camcorders, HDV quickly caught on with many amateur and
professional videographers due to its low cost, portability, and image quality acceptable for many professional productions.
HDV video and audio are encoded in digital form, using lossy interframe compression. Video is encoded with the H.262/MPEG-2 Part 2 compression scheme, using 8-bit chroma and luma samples with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling. Stereo audio is encoded with the MPEG-1 Layer 2 compression scheme. The compressed audio and video are multiplexed into an MPEG-2 transport stream, which is typically recorded onto magnetic tape, but can also be stored in a computer file. HDV video can be recorded or printed back to tape. It is also possible to record M2TS file to any media that offers enough capacity, like a DVD, external HDD drive or a memory card.
If you have got a smart TV or media player, you may want to watch Sony HDV videos on it. But, as we know many videos are in different video formats and codecs, and those formats and codecs are not well for smart TV/media player playback.
