AVCHD - Cost-Effective Format to Store HD VideoBlu-ray players are a bit too expensive now, however there is a downward trend. Movies recorded on such disks are quite expensive. DVD format can neither play HD quality video, nor 720 dpi, to say nothing of 1080. 576 dpi vertical resolution is the top of DVD format capability. AVCHD format disks may be a good solution for storing and playing back HD video. The Advanced Video Coding High Definition technology (AVCHD) was proposed by the electronic giants SONY and Panasonic. This format is designed mainly for HD video cameras where good quality video must combine with the compact size and restricted volume of data carriers. This solution has required the support of AVCHD technology in Blu-ray players. One important feature of the AVCHD format is the possibility to record HD video on common DVDs. All modern Blu-ray players have an AVCHD logo on their casing. Some game consoles (e.g., SONY PlayStation 3) also support this format. Note however that AVCHD disks recorded on DVDs cannot be played on standard DVD players. Today, practically any HD video camera is supplied with special software that allows you to create an image of the AVCHD disk with your video and burning it to any DVD blank. So, you can create your own archives of Full HD records, empty your video camera and play the disk on a Blu-ray player. If you don't feel like busying yourself with software, you might opt for special AVCHD recorders.
