Requirements for Concert Films

April 17, 2017

If you deliver concert films to Apple, they must meet the following requirements by August 1, 2017:

  • Crop dimensions are required for films that are matted and contain inactive pixels. When sending crop dimensions, send accurate dimensions and avoid unnecessary cropping, especially horizontally. If your video does not contain inactive pixels (that is, it is not matted), you can set all the crop values to zero, or omit the crop dimension attribute tags. If you do not supply any crop dimensions, iTunes will default to 0,0,0,0.
  • The minimum requirement for JPG and PNG poster art will be updated to 2000 x 3000. We will no longer support dimensions of 1400 x 2100 as of August 1, 2017. Dimensions for LSR artwork remain unchanged.
  • The minimum requirement for banner customizations will be updated to 4320 x 1080. We will no longer support dimenions of 3200 x 600 as of August 1, 2017. Dimensions for fullscreen customizations remain unchanged.
  • International Standard Audiovisual Number (ISAN) for all concert films sold in Switzerland.

Find more information about crop dimensions and minimum image sizes in the updated iTunes Package Film Specification.

Information regarding delivery of these to Apple can be found in iTunes Package Music Specification 5.3.
