Why AVCHD .MTS is popularly used in digital camcorder?

Standing for Advanced video codec high definition, the AVCHD camcorder format is a modern technological device utilized in the filming industry. It has actually provided a resolution of 1080p, 1080i, and 720p, and allows recorded video files to be captured on memory cards, hard disk drives, and optical disc media.

AVCHD Advantages

Basic AVCHD specifications have been set by Sony Corporation and Panasonic Corporation. Why digital cameras adopt to AVCHD format? Because it has three advantages.

1.Compatibility with Blu-ray Disc

DVDs recorded in the AVCHD format will play back not only on the camcorder itself, but also on a Blu-ray Disc drive or PLAYSTATION 3 that supports AVCHD with high definition quality. In addition, AVCHD files can be recorded to Blu-ray Disc without any degradation in image quality.

2.Record HD images to flash memory, hard disk drives and DVD discs

Regarding recording media, AVCHD camcorders use random access media such as Flash Memory,
hard disk drives, and 8cm DVD discs, which have proliferated in recent years. Non-linear media allows improved user-friendly operation with thumbnail image displays; it also eliminates concerns about accidental or unintentional overwriting of desired A/V material.

3.MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 is used as the compression format

This is a more efficient video compression technique when compared to the conventional MPEG-2/MPEG-4 compression systems. The user obtains a Full HD1080 picture, while using the same bitrates and obtaining the same recording times as a Standard Definition camcorder.

AVCHD MTS Converter for Mac OS X

Every video format has its advantages and disadvantages. AVCHD is not widely used as MP4. Although most media players can play AVCHD MTS files on PC, the files cannot be played conveniently on portable devices like mobile phones, tablets, and mp3/mp4 players.

On Mac OS X, iMovie, FCE, FCP can import most AVCHD .MTS files but need the entire AVCHD folder, which means individual .MTS files are not imported and edited in Mac video editing software. That’s why comes AVCHD MTS Converter for Mac! AVCHD MTS Converter for Mac is a good helper for converting AVCHD .mts files to other video formats that you require, such as MOV, MP4, MPG, MKV, VOB, AVI, WMV, FLV, 3GP, etc.

Free to try the demo, it’s very easy to use.

Open DOC/DOCX files

DOC or DOCX is Microsoft’s proprietary word format, which can contain more text formating as well as scripts and undo information than some other document file formats like RTF (Rich Text Format)and HTML (HyperText Markup Language), but is usually less widely compatible. With each version of Microsoft Word, the standards for the DOC format change slightly which can cause some compatibility issues.

The DOC files created with Microsoft Word versions differ. Microsoft Word versions up to Word 97 used a different format from Microsoft Word 97 – 2003. In Microsoft Word 2007 and later, the binary file format was replaced as the default format by the Office Open XML format, though Microsoft Word can still produce DOC files. So a file with the DOCX extension is a Word Microsoft Office Open XML Format Document File.

Are you trying to access Word 2007 document .docx file extension in Office 2003 and can’t? Here is the trick:
