Burn TS/MTS/M2TS to Blu-ray Disc on Windows / Mac

Summary:

    The TS, MTS and M2TS formats are all container formats primarily used for storing video, audio, and other media data. they are container formats commonly used for storing high-quality audio and video content, with each having its specific use cases and characteristics.

TS file format is a digital container format extensively utilized for storing and transmitting video, audio, and data streams, notably in broadcasting, encompassing satellite, cable, and terrestrial TV transmissions. Within TS files, various data streams, including video, audio, and supplementary data like subtitles or program guides, are multiplexed together into a cohesive unit. This format is engineered to withstand transmission errors, making it ideal for applications where signal quality fluctuates, such as satellite or terrestrial broadcasting. Due to its adaptability and broad compatibility, TS stands as a ubiquitous choice for broadcasting and disseminating video content, particularly in environments where resilience and interoperability are paramount.

 

Here's a brief overview of TS format:

  • Multiplexing: TS files contain multiple data streams multiplexed together into a single file. This includes video, audio, and often other data such as subtitles or program guide information.
  • Packetized Structure: TS breaks data into small packets, typically 188 bytes in size. Each packet is prefixed with a 4-byte header containing synchronization information.
  • Error Resilience: TS is designed to be robust against transmission errors, making it suitable for use in environments where the signal quality may vary, such as satellite or terrestrial broadcasting.
  • MPEG-2 Compression: Video and audio streams in TS files are often compressed using the MPEG-2 codec, though other codecs may also be used.
  • Program Specific Information (PSI): TS includes PSI packets that provide essential information about the streams within the file, such as program allocation tables, program association tables, and other metadata.
  • Compatibility: TS files are widely supported by various media players, broadcast equipment, and software applications.

 

MTS file format is a digital container format commonly used for storing high-definition video recordings. It was developed by Sony and Panasonic and is often associated with AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) camcorders. MTS is a widely used format for recording high-definition video content, especially by users of AVCHD camcorders, and it offers efficient compression and compatibility with various playback devices and software.

 

Here's a concise overview of the MTS format:

  • Compression: MTS files typically use the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video compression standard for video encoding, which efficiently compresses video data while maintaining high quality.
  • Audio Encoding: MTS files commonly contain audio streams encoded using formats such as Dolby Digital (AC-3) or Linear PCM.
  • High Definition: MTS is capable of storing high-definition video content, making it suitable for recording and playing back videos in resolutions such as 720p or 1080p.
  • Compatibility: While MTS files are primarily associated with AVCHD camcorders, they can also be played on various media players and video editing software applications that support the MPEG-2 Transport Stream format.
  • Metadata: MTS files may include metadata such as date and time of recording, camera settings, and other information related to the video content.

 

M2TS file format is a digital container primarily used for high-definition video storage and playback. It's commonly associated with Blu-ray discs and AVCHD camcorders.M2TS is a popular format for storing and playing back high-definition video content, offering efficient compression and compatibility with a range of devices and software applications.

 

Here's a succinct overview of the M2TS format:

  • Container Format: M2TS files serve as containers for storing audio, video, and other data streams.
  • Compression: Video streams within M2TS files are typically compressed using the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec, ensuring high-quality video with efficient compression.
  • Audio Encoding: M2TS files often contain audio streams encoded using formats like Dolby Digital (AC-3) or Linear PCM.
  • High Definition: M2TS supports high-definition video, making it suitable for storing content in resolutions such as 720p or 1080p.
  • Blu-ray Discs and Camcorders: M2TS is commonly used for Blu-ray disc storage and playback, as well as for recording videos on AVCHD camcorders.
  • Compatibility: While M2TS files are commonly associated with Blu-ray discs and camcorders, they can also be played on various media players and video editing software that support the MPEG-2 Transport Stream format.

 

 

 

How to burn TS/MTS/M2TS files to Blu-ray disc?

 

TS/MTS/M2TS files typically denote high-definition videos sourced from digital TV content, Sony or Panasonic video recorders, or Blu-ray movies. Particularly, with the rise of 4K UHD Blu-ray, boasting a resolution of 3840x2160, the demand for viewing such high-quality content on large-screen TVs has surged. However, these high-definition videos often require conversion into Blu-ray discs for playback on TVs, necessitating the use of specialized Blu-ray authoring software and 4K UHD authoring software. One such notable option is the Yuhan Blu-ray Creator and Yuhan 4K UHD Creator. These software solutions offer robust features for converting TS/MTS/M2TS files to Blu-ray or 4K Blu-ray formats.
