A Technically Demanding Effort

A TECHNICALLY DEMANDING EFFORT

Video editing requires extensive computer resources. High-end professional non-linear editing systems rely on expensive separate video boards with sophisticated video capture chips. All systems require fast processorsthe most advanced use multiprocessing to manipulate the torrent of digital data. Video and audio are both best handled in memory-heavy systems with hundreds of megabytes of RAM (random access memory). Editors always want access to more material at higher resolutions, increasing the pressure for more hard drive space. Higher-resolution video requires high-speed interconnections capable of moving data between devices at speeds of between four hundred megabits and one gigabit per second.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
