MTS is file extensions for the high definition digital video camera recorder format, AVCHD (Advanced Video Codec High Definition). AVCHD was jointly established by Sony Corporation and Panasonic Corporation in 2006 for use in their digital tapeless camcorders. MTS files can typically be opened and edited using the software included with Sony and Panasonic HD camcorders.
The fact that the file type can record high-definition video without taking up large amounts of storage space - requiring only approximately 10 gigabytes per hour of video footage as opposed to several times that for other types of video files - is one of the strongest advantages in using a digital video camera that produces .MTS files.
However, unlike many file types that can be viewed and used simply by opening them, .MTS files reside within a specific folder structure that is often required for the file to be used. This highly structured system of folders tells the appropriate software on the computer exactly what the file contains and how to best utilize it.
