Delivery

Delivery

Finished audio and video programs are distributed to their audience in a variety of formats, some no bigger than a postage stamp (as viewed on the latest generation of 3GPP mobile phones) and some that span screen projection dimensions bigger than the side of a barn (IMAX theaters).

Apple's production applications are completely scalable—designed to support the creation of content in these formats and every resolution in between. In some workflows, Compressor, included with Final Cut Pro, Motion, and DVD Studio Pro, is used to encode the completed project into a small form factor more suitable for mass distribution. In other workflows, Cinema Tools acts as the intermediary, forwarding a list of instructions to another application or person that uses the information as a roadmap. Quite often, the finished project is simply printed to videotape. In the case of visual-effects shots and other digital intermediate formats, the high-resolution frames are recorded directly to film via what is essentially a high-resolution printer, referred to as a film recorder.
