What is AVCHD Format?

AVCHD is short for Advanced Video Codec High Definition. In 2006, Sony and Panasonic announced this high-definition disc compression technology which was designated to be used on consumer camcorders such as Canon HF S200, Hitachi DZ-BD10HA, JVC GZ-HM1, Sony series and Panasonic series. Using MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codes, AVCHD is able to support videos at the resolution of 480i, 720p, 1080i, 1080p. In the meanwhile, it also supports Dolby AC-3 (Dolby Digital) or linear PCM audio compression codecs. Generally speaking, AVCHD video files are stored in .mts or .m2ts file extension but there is no difference between the video file contents of these two extensions.

One of the fantastic benefits of AVCHD is its great compatibility with Blue-ray disc format, allowing users to enjoy the HD videos on HDTV or Blue-ray disc player even without owning a Blu-ray disc burner. Besides, as a Unique and Advanced Codec Compression, AVCHD has got stunning features to improve the media presentation like subtitles, slideshows and more.

So far, there is not much editing software being able to support the AVCHD video files natively.
