I found a video here that adds some details to this. This is the key point here:

ref: https://youtu.be/xI7gNQ8Jc14

The Panasonic DC-S5 is a dual conversion gain sensor with base ISOs of 100 and 640 for still photography.

For video they get "boosted" 1, 2, or 2 2/3 stops depending on the choice.
I don't do anything with video but think of these as "effective" ISOs not "real" ones.

Speak of the devil

Could you elaborate on what you mean by "boosted" when it comes to the video ISO values?
