Description
MOD files are a creation by Panasonic and JVC and were used to record videos using a camcorders which were tapeless. MOD is used by both Panasonic and Canon camera devices. Panasonic can also use TOD. These terms are not used as abbreviations and therefore do not have long forms. A hard disk is used to store MOD data. The format is comparable to other file formats like MPEG-2, though it is still utilized in some cases by equipment used in video recording. High definition and standard videos can utilize this format.
Technical details
MOD files can be viewed by any device that supports MPEG-2 video files. They can also be viewed by DVD players since they comply with DVD-video standards. The renaming of MOD and TOD files to mpeg files is possible and this changes the type of file due to existing similarities. The files play videos at a maximum of 720*480 in terms of resolution with a signal of 480i or 576i and also at a view of ratios 4:3 or 16:9. Metadata like date, time, composer and others are stored in MOD files using MOI file extension.
