Exporting with high compression is used to reduce the file size. For example if I record a movie on my Intel Macs HD using EyeTV, it may be about 4GB. If I export it to iTunes then the end file can be as small as 800mb.

There are drawbacks in that you can lose clarity or the ability to watch it full screen without it looking a bit fuzzy.

So in the compression, something is lost, never to return ... something has to be sacrificed in order to have a smaller file size and so what you originally saw in HD will no longer be in HD after the compression has finished.
