DV uses DCT intraframe compression at a fixed bitrate of 25 megabits per second.
The tape speed and track width was increased from DV format and metal evaporated tape is used rather than metal particle tape. DV-Cam produces excellent quality pictures and is frequently used within the media industry.
Each cassette can hold up to 60 minutes of video. The MicroMV format does not use the highly popular DV format. Instead, it uses 12 Mbit/s MPEG-2 compression, like that used for DVDs and HDV.
