Submission Checklist: Preparing Assets and Technical Specs (Jaunt Publishing)

Now that your content has been approved for publication, make sure you're providing the best quality source material available so the content looks as good as it possibly can on the Jaunt apps and website.

To publish your content, we need the following items:

  • Video file
  • Audio file (even if audio is embedded into your video, please provide separate audio file)
  • Poster frame images
  • Title Name, Short Description, Long Description, and Music Cue sheet

The above is a simplified list of what is needed to publish your content with Jaunt. Now let's go into greater detail about each of the above items.

  • Please follow these instructions to upload the file to JCS for transcoding (due to the large size of ProRes files, uploads in excess of 2GB must be transferred using Jaunt Media Manager)

  • If you have spatial audio file(s) available please click here to follow these instructions on how to upload them to JCS for transcoding 
  • Please make sure that you always submit a stereo audio track with your content.  Spatial audio tracks should be submitted in addition to the stereo audio track.

Videos using Dolby Atmos for audio:

Videos with Dolby Atmos should submit one of the following for audio in addition to the stereo .WAV file:

  • PRM Printmaster (exported from RMU)
  • DAMF (.atmos) file (exported from RMU)
  • ec3 bitstream and ambisonic b-format (exported from Dolby VR Toolkit)

Poster Frame Images

A poster frame is an image that best showcases your content. The poster frames are used in the Jaunt VR app, Jaunt website or in a web player. These are the first impressions the audience will see before watching an experience and are required for publishing a title. Poster Frames are the most important piece of your submission for attracting viewers.

Learn more here about creating compelling poster frames.

Poster Frame image requirements:

  • File Type: JPG or PNG
  • Resolutions: (please provide both)
    • 16:9 aspect ratio image - 1920 x 1080 pixels minimum
    • 1:1 aspect ratio image - 1920 x 1920 pixels minimum
  • Naming convention: No spaces or special characters (underscores are an exception) in the filenames

Additional Information

In addition to media assets, all submissions must include the following:

  • Title name: The name of your content as you want it to appear in the Jaunt app. Up to 120 characters.
  • Short description: For preview text in the app and social media. Up to 80 characters.
  • Title description: A description of your content that appears when users look through your content in the app or web player. Up to 280 characters.
  • Music Cue Sheet: A cue sheet is a log of all the music used in a production. Cue sheets are the primary means by which performing rights organizations track the use of music in films and TV. Without cue sheets, it would be nearly impossible for such composers and publishers to be compensated for their work.
