AVCHD Lite

On Jan 27 2009 AVCHD Lite was released. On the same day Panasonic announced its new digital cameras with AVCHD Lite capability.

AVCHD Lite supports up to 1280x720p HD video, which generally means always at 1280x720p.

AVCHD already supports all resolutions from DVD (720x480i for NTSC or 720x576i for PAL) up to 1920x1080p, so what's with AVCHD Lite? This new sub-set of AVCHD uses a slightly different format to 'Full' AVCHD, so most AVCHD conversion/playing software will require an update in order to handle it correctly.

At ShedWorx, we are lucky enough to have a sample AVCHD Lite video clip from one of our friends at Panasonic, so we will update our product line later in February. All of our products will support AVCHD Lite well before the first new AVCHD Lite cameras start shipping in April.

We're online with Twitter!

I've just set myself up on Twitter!

We are about to start work on what we hope will be a very cool new app. I'll be using Twitter to post tweets on how we're going and what we're up to.

    Final Cut Express 4.0.1 Upgrade - Full HD editing at last!

    While doing various testing with Final Cut Express, we've noticed that Apple have finally added support for Full HD editing in Final Cut Express for the first time.

    A very un-publicised 'feature' of FCE was that it did not support 1920x1080 video, but only went as high as 1440x1080 (the old Sony HDV standard for tape-based video cameras). Version 4.0.1 now includes new profiles (under Easy Setup) which go as high as 1920x1080.

    This change was not publicised by Apple, obviously to hide the fact that FCE has not supported full HD editing all this time.

    This is a welcome upgrade for the HD purists out there, so we thought that we'd let everyone know.
