The article focuses on the Advanced Video Codec High Definition (AVCHD) video camera codecs. According to the author, the signature benefit of AVCHD is its compression efficiency as an MPEG-4 based codec which enables it to store more video information at lower bitrates than high-definition video (HDV). The author narrates how his studio used AVCHD cameras in producing a digital video disc (DVD) for singer and actor Rick Springfield.
