|AC Power Adapter||
A power adapter for electronic equipment, including field recorders, video cameras, and laptop computers.

Usually this adapter converts voltages supplied by electrical companies to lower, more regulated voltages that power electronic devices.

(Advanced Video Encoding) - A common high definition video compression standard otherwise known as H.264/MPEG4 AVC. Common for recording and distributing high definition video.

However, it is not an open access format; it has numerous software patents associated with it which can be a cause for concern regarding future access.
