Video Formats • AVI (Audio Video Interleave ) • Computer graphics animation format used in Microsoft. • The format interleaves digitized video frames (or computer-generated frames) and synchronized audio in one file. • MPEG (Moving Pictures Experts Groups) MPEG represents digital video and audio signals for consumer distribution.
Video Formats • Mpeg-1: • The quality at standard VCD resolution and bit-rate is near the quality and performance of a VHS tape. • Mpeg-2: • MPEG2 multichannel audio is one of the digital surround sound system available on DVD discs, another option for Dolby® Digital. • MPEG-4: compression type, DivX, XviD are both MPEG4 codecs. Ex. WMV • MPEG-4 was aimed primarily at low bit-rate video communications; however, its scope was later expanded to be much more of a multimedia coding standard. MPEG-4 is efficient across a variety of bit-rates ranging from a few kilobits per second to tens of megabits per second.
Frame Rate & Video Standards • NSTC (National Television System Committee ) • North America Standard • 30 fps • DV NTSC video is 720 x 480 • PAL • Europe Standard • 25 fps • DV PAL video is 720 x 576
Definitions • MP (Megapixels) means "one million pixels" and is used when describing digital camera capability. Digital cameras boast photo abilities over 9 megapixels. • PPI or "pixels per inch" is the term you will see most often when selecting a resolution for your images in photo editing software. • Pixel is an abbreviation for "picture element." • Millions of pixels make up the image of paper and text that you are viewing on your screen right now. • DPI specifically refers to how many dots of ink will print per inch. The higher the number, the sharper the image will be. • Most ink jet printers today are capable of printing 1200 to 4800 dpi; this means great results for images with 200-300 ppi.
Pixel/Resolution: Printer Setting • 2 MP = 1600 x 1200 pixels • Great Quality: 4 x 6 inches, 5 x 7 inches • Good Quality: 8 x 10 inches • 3 MP = 2048 x 1536 pixels • Great Quality: 8 x 10 inches • Good Quality: 10 x 13 inches • 5 MP = 2592 x 1944 pixels • Great Quality: 10 x 13 inches • Good Quality: 13 x 19 inches
Resolution con. • Consider one thing when selecting resolution—you can always scale down your resolution but you cannot increase the resolution of an image. • Bigger is better if you can accommodate the extra file sizes on your computer and printer. • For best results, a good number to remember when printing an image is 300 pixels/inch at actual size. • When resizing an image with photo editing software, set the dimensions of the image to the print size first (e.g. 5 x7) and then set the resolution to 300 pixels/inch. The lower the pixels per inch, the blurrier the image will appear on paper.
