Thanks for your praise! I helped with setting up the video, but our video editors deserve a lot of it. There are 2 important pieces to producing high quality video for the internet: source and bitrate.
The most important thing to start with is a quality source. These videos were shot with a high quality digital camera. This also makes the transfer to computer easier.
We then use Avid for digital editing, and export it to the Windows Media format, using the v9 encoder. The bitrate you see here is 768k, which is a high enough bitrate to provide nice, smooth video. You can get away with lower bitrates if you have a smaller final video (320x180, for example).
