Some of them prepared their films for mobile phones and others used standard ways of filming. AirBox did its job perfectly, no matter the file format. The system proved to be very robust and easy to use Last-minute changes, playout of SD or HD, 4:3 or 16:9 were just some of the formats of the input material used during the festival.”
