These items are so broad and vast that people will hesitate to respond. Do a Google search or search the boards here... for a starting point. You will find more than enough pertinent info if you are a judicious researcher. Good luck.

I am no engineer, which actually might be a plus while giving this explaination...

Analog video: VHS, Hi8, BetacamSP, 3/4". The video is recorded magnetically onto a tape much like a cassette tape or LP (record).

Digitial Video: MiniDV, DVCAM, Digital Beta. The information is recorded onto the tape as data; 1's and 0's. So when that is then digitized it is a file transfer and not a recording.

HD: Very high resolution digital video.

HDV: The DV version of HD. Highly compressed so less than HD, but better than DV or BetaSP.
