About the NS2-NS8 Formats: 1080i HDV & Wide-SD

Nature Series-2 thru Nature Series-8: All of the content in the NS2-NS8 libraries was sourced in 1080i HDV. The primary camera used was the Canon XL-H1. Standard-Definition versions of NS2-NS8 are available in 16:9 widescreen format. The primary QuickTime codec used is highest quality Photo-JPEG. QuickTime v7 or greater is required.

About RVM High-Definition (HDV) Libraries

HDV, as most are probably aware, is high-definition digital video compressed to the MPEG-2 video format (using a color space of 4:2:0). This compression method enables the use of standardized tape recording systems and video capture via firewire. HDV format has amazing image quality and is an excellent choice for a majority of applications (especially B-roll footage).
