Difference (from prior major revision) (no other diffs)

Added: 3a4,7

Note that video captured by standard-definition digital camcorders is 720 pixels wide but has a PAR of 10:11, giving a display aspect ratio of a little bit wider than 4:3. This has to be taken into account when converting DV to DVD or other formats.
