Configuring Settings for H.264 for Apple Devices Output Files
To ensure that your output media files are iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Apple TV compatible,
it is recommended that you use the standard settings provided in the Apple Devices
group in the Settings tab. For more information on applying settings, see
Settings to Source Media Files
You can also create iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Apple TV compatible media files with batch
templates. For more information, see

Creating H.264 for Apple Devices Output Files
Compressor includes the ability to easily create H.264 settings specifically configured for
Blu-ray and AVCHD discs.
Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD), is a format that was developed to enable recording,
rewriting, and playback of high definition (HD) video. The format offers more than five
times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs and can hold up to 25 GB on a single-layer
disc and 50 GB on a dual-layer disc.
An AVCHD disc can be thought of as a simpler HD disc that is burned to red laser media.
The resulting disc plays in Blu-ray Disc players that are compatible with the AVCHD format.
