DIGIC DVII is the next generation of Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV signal processing technology. Designed specifically for HD, DIGIC DVII ensures optimal image quality. It also ensures optimal image quality for still images, even though video and still images have different color requirements. DIGIC DVII is just another one of Canon's advanced technologies that make the HV20 an exceptional performer.
Thanks to DIGIC DVII image processing, the HV20 produces video with improved color reproduction -- especially in skin tones, and dark and light scenes. It also uses a hybrid noise reduction system that employs two types of noise reduction -- for high definition images that are crystal clear.
Plus, DIGIC DVII features improved continuous shooting of digital photographs with the HV20. You can shoot five (3.1 Megapixel) still images per second, and enjoy faster processing of your images to your memory card (1.4x normal card; 2.5x Hi Speed card). It also helps lower power consumption for longer battery life.
