    From raw video to proxy to mezzanine to final delivery, how many video formats are required in modern media production?

    Video files are the lifeblood of most media companies but the sizes and wide variety of formats bring complexity. One of the most interesting (and challenging) things about working with video is the range of formats in which they appear and are used. Each different format has different strengths, as different formats are required at different phases of the production and distribution lifecycle.

    The DPP and the Democratization of Media

    On October 1st of this year, the UK will host what is being called File Delivery Day, and on October 1st all broadcasters will begin to receive programming in digital format, no exceptions. If this seems like a sudden and drastic shift, it’s been a long time in the making. In September of 2013, a collective of UK based television companies and broadcasters called the Digital Production Partnership and championed by such giants as the BBC and ITV announced the transition, and its deadline–at which point broadcasters began to shift individually.

    Creative Cow | LA-Based Venture 3D Selects Signiant Media Shuttle for Accelerated Delivery of Massive 3D Movie Files

    Known for its conversion work on “Titanic 3D” and “The Chronicle’s of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” Venture 3D is using Media Shuttle to deliver the film “Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons” directed by Stephen Chow of “Shaolin Soccer” and “Kung Fu Hustle” fame. Venture 3D’s business success on the project requires the ability to move massive files – sometimes 200-300 GB in a single transfer ­– to multiple entities across Asia. As such the company required a solution that would give their global partners access to large files without the administrative constraints of FTP.

    “We embed producers with each of the teams: they travel on the team plane, they travel on the team bus, and they feed us back stories that we want to get turned around very quickly,” says Ed Holmes, director of engineering, MLSE. “We take the game and create what we call a Game in Six, which is a six-minute highlight package, [and] we integrate that with a lot of the feature things. I mean, we shoot on the bus, we shoot anywhere we can, [and] we try to get it back here to Toronto as quickly as possible.”

    Digital Media World | Film Festival Picks a Winner with Media Shuttle

    “For previous festivals, we relied on free file sharing sites for digital film submissions. With finished file sizes exceeding 2Gb, filmmakers often experienced long upload times – up to three hours – and if transfers were interrupted for any reason, time was lost and they had to start all over again,” said Festival President Kevin Burton. “With 60 days to make their films, every minute counts.” In addition to submission of lower resolution judging versions of entries, Media Shuttle will be used to submit the final ProRes digital film versions for screening, instead of relying on couriers or in-person deliveries.
