From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

SheerVideo was a family of proprietary lossless video codecs developed by BitJazz Inc. The codecs enabled devices to play, capture, edit, and archive high-quality lossless videos in real time.

As of July 2023, SheerVideo is still available[1] as a set of QuickTime codecs on Mac and Windows and as a set of AVI codecs on Windows.


SheerVideo was initially developed by Andreas Wittenstein at BitJazz Inc. in July 2002.

As of September 2022, SheerVideo is no longer under active development.
