DVCPRO HD resolution : 1440 X 1080 or 1920 X 1080?

Hi,
I have footage which is shot on Panasonic HDX900 camera at DVCPRO HD 1080I50. It has resolution 1440 X 1080 but when I export it as a 'self contained movie' it gives me 1920 X 1080 resolution & also when I export it 'using quicktime conversion' - in the 'size' tab it gives me 1440 X 1080 (1888 X 1062) resolution. What it is that I am missing? or that's the way it is ?
Also, The client wants 2 versions - HD DVD & PAL DVD. & I have toast titanium 9 which gives me only PAL dvd option. What can be done for HD DVD ? or do I have to buy Toast 10 for that?

I have absolutely no idea as I am working on HD for the first time.
Thanx in advance.



thanx
shreyas.

Hi Shreyas,
The 1440x1080 DVCProHD frame is equivalent to the 1980x1080 Square pixels. DVCProHD use HD pixels that are different than the Square pixels.

HD DVD it doesn't exist any more. You may try a BluRay.
make your MPEG-2 BlueRay compliant in Compressor and toast it with Toast 10.

You can encode for HD DVD in Compressor and author in DVD Studio Pro.

Lets clear a little confusion here. You can create an HD DVD using Compresor and DVD SP that will be playable on a Mac.

You can create BluRay assets (h.264 or MPEG-2) in Compressor and use Toast 9 or 10 (with the required BluRay plug-in) to create a BluRay disc.

Or forget about Blu-Ray all together. I made several Blu-Ray discs using toast.
You can burn Blu-Ray content onto a regular DVD-R and get about 20 mins of play time.
I could play the disc in a PS3 and a stand-alone Blu-Ray player.
But I found this:

WD TV™ HD Media Player - $129
http://store.westerndigital.com/store/wdus/en_US/DisplayProductDetailsPage/...

Getting HD onto this was so easy that I have given up Blu-Ray (For Now).
You can encode an HD H.264 .mov directly from FCP.
Copy to a USB thumb drive - plug it into the WD TV™ HD Media Player and go.
You can also hook up a USB drive and play days worth of videos.
My clients use these units at trade shows and are much more reliable
than playing discs for 3 days in a row. You can also loop videos.
You can also play slide shows from images.

Hi Mike,

we are also using the WDTV HD players instead of Blu Ray.
The only thing we don't seem to get perfect is the interlacing. We shoot and edit XDCAM H422 1080i50. What is the best way to create H264 .mov files as our players and LED screens only play at 1080p?

Thx!
