When video is first edited, it resides on the computer in a very large file. To prepare finished videos for distribution on the Internet, DVD or CD-ROM, we must first perform a series of tasks known collectively as "compression." Compression consists of many key elements; therefore, the compressionist must always ask himself or herself what the target use for the video will be. Each different use demands drastically different settings â€“ some of which are very complex and require detailed consideration of the source material for best results.
Often, there is a specific data rate target. This situation forces the compressionist to focus on squeezing as much quality out of the settings without going over the allotted file size. More and more often, video clips are bound for more than just one destination, and must perform well across a variety of uses. All of these things play into the decisions made by a person compressing video.
Fortunately, you're in for a streamlined process with eThree Media. We have been winning awards for projects containing our compressed video work for almost as long as we've been open for business. Video compression is a dynamic field where technologies change rapidly. eThree Media is on top of the industry trends, and we will always offer the best available formats for our clients. We are grateful to have the business of several other production companies for their mission-critical video compression projects.
