[QUOTE=franz99;2188345]I still do not understand if this concept of Â« AVC-HD movies Â» refers to:
[B]1Â°)[/B] [B]Stamped[/B] commercial BDMV discs of movies using the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC compression
[B]2Â°)[/B] HD movies burned on BD-R/RE discs and using the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC compression.
a) the ‘AVCHD format’ used by the [B]standalone [/B]blu-ray burner such as the Panasonic DMR-BW500
b) the ‘BDAV format’ coming out of Nero 9 and using the AVC compression
[B]3Â°) [/B]Or [B] only[/B] to HD movies burned [B][U]on DVDâ€™s[/U][/B] using a method such as described by zevia here:
Â« BD2DVD: Blu-ray to DVD guide Â»
[B]4Â°)[/B] or [B]all[/B] of these 3 as long as the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC compression is used
and the files structure [B]Â« compliant with the Blu-ray format Â»[/B]
Thanks for any explanations[/QUOTE]
1, 2, 3 & 4.
Generally though - it’s just High Definition video content that complies with Bluray compatible standard in terms of resolution, codecs, bitrates & container.
Once you have your AVCHD compliant Video file, you can produce BD9/BD5 or real 25/50GB Bluray discs, or even just bluray compatible file structures on a flashdisk or portable HDD and play them on a Bluray player without re-encoding/modifying the content of the Video.
Hopefully that satisfies your curiosity
