Standard Definition Video

Standard Definition Video: Once the ubiquitous standard for video. It applies to video captured or delivered in 720 (wide) x 480 (long) resolution (i.e. number of pixels on each dimension of the display). It is an NTSC standard delivered with a 4:3 aspect ratio.  Standard Definition is no longer the preferred standard for capture and delivery of oral history interviews. [ Video Glossary ]
