MVI stands for Musical Video Interactive, a DVD-based means of packing audio, video and interactive visual content (for example lyrics) onto one disk. The audio content is provided in multiple formats, including a high-definition version (a minimum of 24-bit at 48kHz sampling) and an MP3 version for copying to portable audio players. The video content is compatible with DVD video, and can also optionally include high-definition video. Some Canon digital still cameras (Powershot A75, A63, S410 etc), are capable of shooting a limited amount of video, since there is no tape, it is saved as an MVI file format.
However, Final Cut Express does not import the Canon MVI videos. You can not easily open, play and edit them on Mac.
