Glossary
Activation – Due to the European customs regulations, the import of digital video recorders
is more expensive than the import of digital video playback devices. For this reason,
manufacturers of camcorders have started to modify their products for the European market
by disabling the DV input. Some smart developers didn't take long to find ways to remove this
limitation. This procedure is called "Activation". This activation is required to transfer video
material from external sources to a DV camcorder. Activators are available for almost all types
of camcorders, and can be bought legally at your retailer.
AVI – A Windows video format.
Bitrate – Indicates the amount of a data transferred per second. The higher the bit rate, the
better the quality. There are two types of bit rates: Constant (e.g. for -> VCD) and variable (e.g.
->SVCD and -> DVD. In contrast to the constant bit rate, the variable bit rate is aligned to
picture material.
Blue Screen – A Variation of -> Chroma Keying
Capture – Another word for recording.
Chroma Keying – Chroma keying uses a mono colored surface, to record , for example, an
actor in front of it. When the recorded video is edited, the mono colored surface may be
replaced by another background.
Chrominance – Chrominance indicates the color signal in ->YUV, which consists of two color
components. U is the balance between red and cyan, while V is the balance between yellow
and blue.
Clip – A small piece of video material.
Color saturation – Indicates the amount of color in a picture.
Composite Video – Composite Video is a transmission process used in the consumer section.
It is processed over a cinch connector and is often used with TV sets. In this procedure, all
signals (chrominance and luminance) are transmitted with only one cable. The Composite
Video's quality is worse than, for example, in -> S-Video, where chrominance and luminance
are transmitted separately.
CPU – Central Processing Unit. The part of your computer that actually calculates (I. E.
Pentium or Athlon)
D8 – Digital 8 is the successor of Hi8 or the VHS-C format for camcorders. Though it is still
recorded on Hi8 or D8 cassettes, it uses a digital DV format.
VideoSystem Cameo 200 RT (English)
25
Data flow rate – see Data transfer rate
Data transfer rate – the data transfer rate indicates, how fast your hard disk drive can read or
write continuously. The data transfer rate is measured in megabytes per second, e.g. 7 MB/s.
Device control – Indicates the possibility to control your DV camcorder from the computer.
DirectDraw – DirectDraw is a graphical standard initiated by Microsoft. Among other features
it enables data to be written directly to the graphic card's memory space, to allow e.g. a
seamless video display.
Dropped Frames – these are missing pictures in the video data flow, mainly caused by slow
hard disk drives.
DV – DV is the abbreviation of Digital Video. The DV standard has a compression procedure
of 5:1, which corresponds to a data rate of 3,125 MB/s and therefore can be handled by
almost every hard disk drive. The DV quality standard is very high and is often used in
professional productions. There are two types of DV cassettes, which differ in size and
maximum play length, while their video data is compatible to one another. Mini DV is mostly
used in the consumer section and offers tapes with a length of up to one hour. The DV format
for professional use offers play lengths of up to three hours.
DVD – DVD is the abbreviation of Digital Versatile Disk. The diameter is the same as of a
standard CD-ROM. At the moment, memory capacities from 4,7GB (DVD-5) to 17GB (DVD-18)
and data rates from 600 to 1300KByte/s are specified.
In addition there are various formats, like DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW
and DVD-RAM.
DV-In – The DV connector of a camcorder usually is able to transfer video data in both
directions – in and out of the camcorder. However, many of the E European camcorders do
not provide the DV input option. See also -> Activation
FireWire™ – Apple’s name for -> IEEE-1394
Framerate – Indicates the number of pictures in specific time. Often measured in
FramesPerSecond.
Half pictures – To avoid flickering when reproducing video signals on a TV screen, 50 half
pictures per second are transmitted in stead of 25 whole pictures (in PAL standard. Half
pictures are e either the uneven lines (transmitted first) or the even lines, displayed on the
screen.
Hi8 – Analog video recording system, transmitting color and illumination separately, allowing
a better quality as in example VHS-C.
26
VideoSystem Cameo 200 RT (English)
Hosiden connector – A small connector with 4 poles to transmit ,in example, -> S video
signals.
IEEE-1394 – Originally a Universal Bus system for digital data transfer, developed by Apple.
Devices may be connected by cables with a length of up to 4, 5 m. This system offers data
transfer rates of up to 400 Mbits/s. As there's is no specified data format for this system yet, a
homogenous standard for video data is still missing. Sony has filled the gap with the
"normative strength of the actual", by integrating FireWire™ connectors into their own digital
recorders. FireWire™ and the Sony protocol have finally achieved seamless video editing.
Ilink – Sony’s name for -> IEEE-1394
Interlacing – see half pictures.
Linear Editing – see Linear video cut
Linear video cut – The linear video cut originates in analogue video. Original video data is
mostly available in the same order as edited video clips. A simple way of linear cutting is, for
example, the transmission from an analogue video camera to a video recorder and the
simultaneous erasure of some clips. If you wish to insert, for example, a new video clip at the
middle, all following clips must be cut again.
Luma Keying – In opposition to Chroma Keying, in Luma Keying the video transparence is
determined by the illumination.
Luminance – Luminance indicates illumination in -> YUV. (Y)
Main memory – See RAM
MiniDV – the consumer version of the DV-format. See also –> DV.
MiniDVD – Indicates a procedure, where -> DVD data with a corresponding registry structure
and a navigation menu is copied to conventional CD. Due to the small memory space, a
MiniDVD can only store 18 minutes of video data. Unfortunately, only a few DVD players can
play MiniDVD, so that for the creation of a MiniDVD, a reproduction on a computer is
recommended.
MJPEG – Motion JPEG is a compression procedure, where every picture in the video data
stream is compressed individually.
MPEG – The Motion Picture Experts Group is a consortium of leading manufacturers and
developers of video technology, setting new standards like MPEG-1 or MPEG-2.
Non-linear Editing – see Non Linear Video Cut
VideoSystem Cameo 200 RT (English)
27
Non-linear video cut – In contrast to the -> linear video cut, this procedure allows you to edit
video clips without influencing the following clips. The non-linear video cut enables you, for
example, to shorten a clip at the beginning of a video project without having to edit the
following video clips again.
NTSC – NTSC is a video standard which is used, for example in Japan or the USA. NTSC offers
a higher frame rate than PAL (30 pictures or 60 -> half pictures per second, but uses a lower
resolution (525 lines, of which 480 are visible). The color display in the NTSC standard is
indicated in ->YIQ.
Overscreening – Indicates the soft effective transition from one video clip to another.
PAL – PAL is the most common video standard in Europe. The frame rate of PAL is 25 pictures
per second (or 50 ->half pictures. The color display in PAL is indicated in ->YUV.
Preview – the preview offers you a practical overview of your work. The final quality is usually
better than the quality of a preview.
RAM – Random Access Memory is your computers main memory. Video editing with the use of
effects requires a lot of main memory, so: The more RA M you have, the better it is.
Rendering – Indicates the re-calculation of video and audio clips, after having changed them,
for example, by using filters or effects.
RGB Color space – In the RGB color space, every visible pixel consists of the three
components R(ed), G(reen) and B(lue).
Saturation – see Color saturation
Screen – see Overscreening
Storyboard – In contrast to -> Timeline, the Storyboard offers a topical overview of your video
project's order. Individual scenes can be identified easily, with the lack of a relation to the
real length of a project.
SVCD – Abbreviation for Super Video CD. SVCD resembles a ->VCD with the advantage, that
the data is available in a MPEG2 format with a -> variable bit rate. In addition, the resolution of
480 x 576 pixels exceeds the resolution of a VCD. A SVCD can usually store 45 to 50 minutes
