The challenge of HD In the last 50 years our televisions have developed from valve-powered boxes displaying grainy black and white images, to large scale flat-panel LCD screens that bring the cinema experience into the home. Now a brand new revolution in image
reproduction is underway: High Definition (HD) Television. HD brings a new level of clarity, detail and brilliance to the display of digital video.
HD image capture places extra burdens on a video camera – because of the high level of detail in an HD image, any slight aberration can become painfully obvious. A tiny fleck of dust or slightly out of focus shot that might go unnoticed in SD (Standard
Definition) can be spotted immediately in HD. In order to produce quality HD footage, a high quality HD camcorder is essential.
