Appendix C. Common Film and Video Formats

This appendix is provided as an additional source of information about some of the film and video formats that the typical compositor might encounter in the course of his or her daily work. It builds on the topics and discussions that were covered in Chapter 10, and you should read that chapter before attempting to decipher some of the information given here. Please note that, although sample resolutions are given for some of the analog formats discussed, these should be considered examples rather than standards. There may be many ways to digitize a given analog format and thus there is no guarantee that a specific digitization method will produce an image that is identical to what we have described.
