Please keep the following in mind: The technical department accepts only .MOV .MP4 formats for video. Any other format will need to be converted to any of these three formats before submission. We will not guarantee playback unless they are in these format.s.

It is the responsibility of the submitter to convert their files accordingly. Video resolution has to either be 480p (854 x 480) or 720p (1280 x 720). Videos not in either definition must either be up‐scaled or down‐scaled to the closest resolutions before submission.

Frame‐rate must either be 30 fps or 25 fps.
Video bitrate should be no more than 2.5 mbps or no less than 1 mbps.

Video MUST NOT be interlaced. Please use H.264, Div‐X or X‐Vid for compression. 1‐pass encoding is fine but 2‐pass will produce a better result however it will take longer to encode.

If there is audio with the video, the audio must be 16‐bit uncompressed. It can be stereo or mono. Video files submitted must be below *** 300MB. *****

The Technical Department accepts only .MP3 format for audio. Any other format will need to be converted to MP3 before submission. It is the responsibility of the entrant to convert their files accordingly.
