An explanation of technical jargon
The entire acronym means that this file system allows compression of huge volume of data into small space so that they can be decompressed or extracted when they have to be viewed on a player. The parent companies that were the chief drivers in establishing the presence of .mts formats are Sony and Panasonic, both of which are known for their wide ranges in cameras and high definition video recorders right from the inception of their company. The video codec is an essential part of the .mts format because the videos captured by HD camcorders are usually 50 or 60 frames per second with a 1080 pixel resolution which means that one can get very clear pictures in huge sizes. This is the main reason why videos captured by high definition cameras are saved in Blu – ray discs and require blu – ray players too.
