High Def (HD)  – 1920×1080 – refers to the size of the image which is 1920 pixels in length and 1080 pixels in height to accommodate today’s televisions.  Prior to 2007 all camcorders captured video in Standard Def (SD) – 720 x 480.  We have the technology to transfer SD to HD which allows for the viewing of the video as a larger image.  HD files will play on today’s 4K/UHD TVs.
