Rendering video for jumbotron.

I am tasked to render some HD video for use on a jumbotron. I contacted the tech folks about the required format and received the following specs: Video Board: 720x480 AVI, Matrox I Frame, 29.97fps, .9 pixel. Not sure what to make of the Matrox spec. When I search on it it appears to be for MPEG-2. Anyone have any idea of what exactly they are looking for, and can Vegas supply it?

Regards,
Jerry Jesion

What model of Jumbotron do you have? When we were still using an SD board, we had to render at 720x486 to make it work. It was a pain in the butt.

Re: Rendering video for jumbotron (solved).

The jumbotron issue was overstated. There was an HDMI input that took any codec that VLC (or any display software) put out. Re-encoding not necessary. The vids didn't look too bad either.

I haven't seen a Jumbotron in 20+ years. Are you sure it just isn't a LED video wall? An Imagepro will scale to anything you need anyways.
