Rendering Your Videos for PegMedia Upload

In order for stations playing your video to have the best quality when broadcasting them, it's important to consider the parameters you use for rendering the video file from your editor.

For HD/MP4 files:

For HD files, resolution must be 1080P (1920x1080) or 720P (1280x720), NON-INTERLACED. 1080P is highly recommended. Generally 720P should be used for legacy footage which was shot at a lower resolution.

HD/MP4 rendering guidelines:

H.264 video progressive with AAC audio
File Extension: MP4

Audio Encoder

AAC, Stereo (L R), 48 kHz

Video Encoder

Width and Height: 1080P - 1920x1080 (preferred) or 720P - 1280x720

Bit Rate: 1080P 8-10 Mbps, 720P 8 Mbs
Codec: H264

When uploading, the PegMedia service has the option to create a copy of your HD video in SD format, so that you DO NOT have to create and upload both an HD and SD version of every video. Keep in mind that you need to keep your titles and primary action within the "Title Safe" area if you want the SD version to display correctly. Most video editing software has an option to set that outline on your rendering window for guidance.

For MPEG2 Files:

File Extension: MPG

Audio Encoder

Sample Rate: 48Khz
Codec: MPEG Audio

Video Encoder

Width and Height: NTSC 720x480
Encoder: MPEG2
