Using HDV Assets
The HDV format uses MPEG-2 encoding to store HD video on a standard DV or Mini DV
tape. Two video resolutions supported by the HDV format:
• 1280 x 720 (720p) at 19 Mbps
• 1440 x 1080 (1080i or 1080p) at 25 Mbps (which is anamorphic 16:9)
Imported HDV assets have the video and audio separated into elementary streams (the
HDV format combines the video and audio into a single file), but are not otherwise
processed or converted.
The HD DVD specification does not support all HDV frame rates. See
for more information.
