What are CPI files?

The CPI files are like AVHD Clip type files, which is a video compression code developed by Sony and Panasonic for their products based on MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 technology widely used in video cameras & digital devices.

These devices, once they record the video, create an MTS file to save the camera sensor data and with this file, a separate CPI is created to save metadata related to resolution, contrast, aspect, exposure., etc.

This data is used as a complement to the video data with which the file is associated and will always be saved with the same name as its corresponding MTS file.

By generating these files, they are confused by their MTS counterparts and when the user proceeds to execute them they redirect him to his video file.

But we can also open them as a normal video. Below we have mentioned the software with which we can open CPI Files.
