What is DVD HQ?

We are asked to provide output in "DVD-HQ". I don't find many references to this. Is it an official standard? What's the difference between it and "normal DVD"?
Thanks for any input.

Who is asking?

Are there any other requirements?

DVD is DVD only difference is the quality of the encode but there is no HQ status.

DVD HQ (IMHO) is DVD "Superbit" - DVD9@Max video bitrate + AC3 448k + DTS1536, w/o addons/extras

If that is the case it is very dangerous. WIth the software encoders that most people use you have get a lot of failures of "Bit rate too high"

Superbit was also a bust retail wise in the states.

Perhaps they just meant onto a DVD at high-quality, which i'd assume to mean best possible quality while staying within spec. Superbit is a total sham. Give me quality encoding at standard bitrates in 16:9 anamorphic any day. That's as good as standard def DVD can ever really be.
