So my client has contracted us to do a video, we are shooting HDTV 1920x1080 and they send me the specs. The video will need to be edited to fit 3072 x 768 pixels in order to meet our Oct 7 open house needs. This came from their PR&Web department. What format is this?

3 x XGA resolution (1024 x 768) in width. Think of it as three XGA screens side by side.

I suspect it's going to be three screens. Either side-by-side-by-side monitors or edge-blended projection. Sounds like an interesting project in any case.

You should go back to the client to get more information. As Alan said, they may be three separate screens or one large one. In either scenario, they're probably using a specialized playback system with very specific delivery requirements. You'll want to know specifically what video container, codec and frame rate you're expected to deliver, as well as whether you need to deliver one large file or three pre-split ones.

Thanks, Walter, for filling in a couple missing pieces in my comments.
