Micro Mv Camcorder Format Explained

Overview:
Micro MV was a videotape format introduced in 2001 by Sony. This cassette is physically smaller than a Digital 8 or DV cassette. In fact, Micro MV is the smallest videotape format — 70% smaller than Mini DV or about the size of two quarters.

Micro MV has not been a successful format. From 2006, Sony stopped offering any new Micro MV camcorder models.

Quality:
The Micro MV 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.

Capacity:
Each cassette can hold up to 60 minutes of video.
