Roll-Up Roll-Up welcome to the wacky world of PAR - the Pixel Aspect Ratio. Draw the curtains, lower the lights and breathe out slowly..... Ready? Really....?
Here yah goes : 1440x1080 is also known as HDV. HDV was the first consumer form of HD which was tape based. But HD is 16:9 aspect ratio, so the sensor had rectangular pixels (non square - 1.33:1) and when played back, the 'non square' pixels fill the 16:9 screen. Check your PAR on your HVR cammies.
