"High quality" and "lossless" aren't necessarily the same thing.

I think most DV -- including the BetaDV used by video professionals 
-- is compressed using a lossy scheme.  I think it may also be 
encoded in an uneven format (with twice as many bits for luminance 
than for chromanance and a restricted bit range for all).
