Resolution refers to the lines of horizontal resolution. In high definition, 720 and 1080 are the most popular resolutions.
rate is the number of frames per second. For film, this number is
traditionally 24. Video has traditionally been 30 frames per second. To
emulate film, some video formats can record 23.98 frames.
Progressive or Interlaced
“interlaced” video, every other line of resolution is changed with each
frame (technically, since it's not the whole “frame” changing,
interlaced video is “half-frames” referred to as “fields”). In a
progressive picture, the entire resolution of the frame is updated with
every frame, making for a clearer picture compared to an interlaced
frame of the same resolution. That's why 1080 interlaced (more
resolution) is comparable to 720 progressive (more resolution per
frame), even though 1080 is a higher number.
Not everyone has the VTRs or processing that they need to complete their project in-house, so we offer a special utility rate for these clients. Utility services include up-converting, down-converting, cross-converting, dailies, dubbing, digitizing, capturing, and compressing.
Depending on where your project is broadcast, the format they require may vary. House of Blues Post can handle almost any format, whether it's 720p at 23.98 or 1080p at 29.97 or 1080i at 59.94 on HDCAM, DVCPRO-HD, XDCAM-HD, HDV, AVC-Intra, etc. We can also conform any source material to any final format (ex: 720p to 1080i). However, if you are unsure of how to optimize shooting for your finished product, please feel free to contact us before you start so we can discuss how to technically make your production at the highest quality from the beginning.
