Apple’s new iFrame format kind of blind-sided us.  While we catch up, we’ll provide some of the more interesting tidbits.  We’ll start with Apple’s just posted KB on the subject

  • The standard resolution of iframe is an unconventional 960×540 pixels and is also called iFrame on the new Sanyos.  Something tells us that this resolution is important for another product coming soon.
  • It is indicated by a star icon:   (looks like iMovie, no?)
  • Sanyo VPC-HD2000A and Sanyo VPC-FH1A are the only two camcorders in the world that currently support this resolution
  • The resolution, demonstrated in red below against other popular formats, is quarter 1080P in pixels (half width, half height).
