Information about the format: DV

Format DV
Company
Description DV is a format for recording and playing back digital video. It was launched in 1995 with joint efforts of leading producers of video camera recorders.
Benefits DV now enables filmmakers to produce movies inexpensively, and is strongly associated with independent film and citizen journalism. The high quality of DV images, especially when compared to Video8 and Hi8 which were vulnerable to an unacceptable amount of video dropouts and hits, prompted the acceptance by mainstream broadcasters of material shot on DV. The low costs of DV equipment and their ease of use put such cameras in the hands of a new breed of videojournalists. Programs such as TLC's Trauma: Life in the E.R. and ABC News's Hopkins: 24/7 were shot on DV.
Drawbacks It has been replaced by HDV, a format for recording and playback of high-definition video on a DV cassette tape.HDV quickly caught on with many professional users due to its low cost, portability and image quality acceptable for many professional productions. HDV is backwards compatible with DV, meaning that HDV equipment can play and record DV content. Many Sony HDV camcorders can play DVCAM recordings
