QuickTime adds HD export for AppleTV

QuickTime now offers a new export option: “Export for Apple TV.” This feature allows users to export movies created with any QuickTime compatible product, such as iMovie and Final Cut Pro, into high definition videos that can be played from Apple TV.

Unlike other export options previously supported and whose definition was below that corresponding to DVD quality, the export option for Apple TV creates videos with resolutions of 720 x 400 pixels and 1,280 x 720 pixels; the latter being an HD format supported by all compatible televisions.
