HDV Tape to DVD 

HDV is a format for recording of high-definition video on DV cassette tape. It was initially developed by JVC and supported by Sony, Canon, and Sharp. HDV was an affordable high-definition format for digital camcorders. It quickly caught on with many amateur and professional videographers. Due to its low cost, portability, and image quality acceptable for many professional productions. HDV was a step up from mini DV. It used a 16:9 widescreen format, with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. This is a substantial improvement over Mini DV, which recorded video in a 4:3 format, with a maximum resolution of 500 horizontal lines.
