What is AVCHD and AVCHD Lite?

AVCHD is a camcorder video format. It is a high definition video file that is very popular among home video makers. AVCHD stands for Advanced Video Codec High Definition. This format belongs to the collection of today’s HD digital video formats.

Developed by Panasonic and Sony, AVCHD was first introduced in 2006. Although intended for consumer camcorders, it was later used by professional movie makers. AVCHD uses the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 standard, supporting a variety of standard, high definition, and stereoscopic (3D) video resolutions. For audio compression, it supports bothDolby AC-3 (Dolby Digital) and uncompressed linear PCM audio. Stereo and multichannel surround (5.1) are both supported.

AVCHD Lite, produced by Panasonic, is a subset of AVCHD defined as devices using the codec at video resolutions up to 1280x720p. Generally this means any camera that uses AVCHD and records 1280×720 video will be referred to as an AVCHD Lite camera because it’s unlikely that cameras will record AVCHD video at lower resolutions.
