What is mod?
MOD are informal names of tapeless video formats used by JVC, Panasonic and
Canon in some models of digital camcorders. Format names correspond to extensions
of video files. Neither JVC nor Panasonic, who pioneered the format, explained

files. The formats were never given an official name.
