Charter
OMF is a not-for-profit retirement project making films to raise funds and/or awareness for specific charities. OMF is not a company and is not a charity.

The two key reasons for OMF making fils are to raise funds for charities and to raise awareness by screenings. Both are addressed by our distribution streams.

Once the replacement for VHS cassettes, although by current standards DVD is very low quality it remains the most popular of our distribution streams, outselling all other options in most cases.

The fact remains though that DVD is only 720x576, the 609 colour space is quite limited and audio is compressed.

Even 'upscaled' DVD will never display as good as a Blu-ray HD.

Put simply, with six times the video resolution, Blu-ray trounces DVD in terms of visual quality. As well as pixel for pixel resolution count, Blu-ray's wider 709 colour space also delivers better colour within the HD 1920x1080 format so it is a win win situation.

Blu-ray is also capable of carrying more uncompressed audio and with current OMF productions being created with Dolby Digital Surround Sound this is significant.

If you have the capability to play a Blu-ray, go for this option.

There are times when a disk is simply not feasible and in these mobile times that is becoming more of an issue.

VOD, or Video On Demand, allows streaming to a variety of displays including smart TV, desktop computers, tablets, mobiles, the web and Roku, with stream through iOS, Android, Apple TV, and other OS, plus download and save to hard drive, disk or USB.

VOD retains HD resolution although current Vimeo systems convert audio to stereo.

Where the highest quality is required for big screen projection and even Blu-ray does not deliver, we can also output OMF films onto HDD (portable hard drives) with either USB or Firewire connectivity or output as a DCP for cinema projection.

Films on HDD are created with Apple ProResHQ 422 codec, which is the same as our source post-production files, and will also include the full digital surround sound audio and could even be at our source 4K resolution.
