After introduced the first MOD camcorders, JVC pioneered a new format, named TOD and used for high definition files. In January 2007 JVC announced its first high definition tapeless consumer camcorder, the Everio GZ-HD7, which recorded 1080i MPEG-2 video to either a built-in hard disk drive or an SD memory card. Data rates, frame sizes and frame rate were comparable to 1080-line XDCAM and HDV video. TOD format is a high definition video format, storing video in MPEG transport stream container files with .tod extension.
And JVC continuously released JVC GZ series camcorders as TOD camcorders: JVC GZ-HD7, JVC GZ-HD3, JVC GZ-HD5, JVC GZ-HD6, JVC GZ-HD30 and JVC GZ-HD40.
