Chicago Videographer Discusses HD Formats

Now more than ever, video editing is able to capture videos in better quality, higher definition pictures. With the onset of HD video, televisions and channels, digital cameras with huge amounts of mega pixels and Blu-ray discs, the demand for high definition or HD formats is only increasing at a very high rate. The desire for high definition is understandable. Favorite TV shows are new again once viewed in HD. Colors are more vivid, and faces become clearer. While many youth-obsessed actors are worried over how they might look under the scrutiny of an HD camera, everyone else seems to love the new wave of HD technology and productions.

The term “high definition” has been applied to television sets since the late 1930s. Of course, the television was still a new invention at that time and this standard of HD would be extremely low definition for our modern video editing standard of television watching. Since the 1970s, however, digital compression in television sets has grown, and televisions have become increasingly truly HD. Today, however, the difference between HD and standard definition is clearer than ever. Flipping between the HD and standard definition versions of the same channel, the difference in quality is easily seen.

From a video production standpoint, high definition allows for clearer, more beautiful pictures. With a different aspect ratio, 16:9 for HD, as opposed to 4:3 for standard definition, HD formatting allows for wider, panoramic shots. When filming a project, nature scenes come alive and colors become incredibly vivid. For personal projects, HD is desirable for its incredible detail. A wedding filmed in HD can beautifully capture every last detail on even the most elaborate bridal gowns.

Blu-ray discs allow for HD videos to be viewed at home. A Blu-ray disc may have the same dimensional capacity of a standard CD or DVD in that it takes up the same amount of space on your shelf, but its storage capacity is tremendous. With twenty-five gigabytes of storage on a single-layered disc, the Blu-ray is the perfect disc for storing HD videos. The storage capacity of a Blu-ray versus a DVD makes it the ideal choice for containing wonderful HD videos and films. Because of its high definition, HD movies require more storage space, which a DVD is unable to provide. Think of how a digital camera with a higher megapixel count creates photos that require more room on a hard drive than those with lower amounts of mega pixels, and, therefore, less definition.

The beautiful, crystal clear pictures provided by HD formatting improve any video editing project enormously. Corporate sales pitches in HD show a dedication to quality and HD music videos and commercials are sure to sell more product. HD seems to be the future of video production, and rightfully so.
