When files are uploaded to Filestage the system transcodes the files so that they can be viewed on all platforms from desktop to mobile devices.

With video files, you have many file types and export variations. In general, Filestage will present all of these accurately even after transcoding. However, to ensure the highest quality, we recommend exporting the video file in the Rec. 709 color space and converting  your video into a progressive scans.

How to ensure the best video quality in Filestage?

To make sure that your video is displayed optimally, there is the aspect of the color spectrum and that of the resolution.

To ensure maximum color accuracy, we recommend creating  videos with the “Rec. 709” color space. The “Rec. 709” color space is the most common.

Using the Rec. 709 color profile in Premiere Pro:

  1. Right-click on the media in the project panel

  2. Choose Interpret Footage > Main

  3. The Interpret Footage window will open, click on the Color Management tab

  4. Open the Assign Profile dropdown menu

  5. Find Rec. 709 Gamma 2.4

Please note that, changing the assigned profile will change the appearance of color in the media everywhere it is used in your project and will result in colors being rendered differently in your exports. Only do this if you really know that you need to.

Progressive vs. Interlaced

Both 1080p and 1080i are 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. The difference is in the image composition. The P stands for "Progressive Scan" and describes that every single image consists of a full frame. The I stands for "Interlaced" and indicates that the images are sent as fields.

There are examples where you will see a video that has an unsteady segment when you freeze the frame or you attempt to slow it down. The issue may not be observable when you were playing it at full speed, but freezing or slowing it down will show that some frames are too shaky to appropriately see. You can deinterlace your video to a progressive video, can fix it.
