In the context of Digital Asset Management, rendition means different editions or versions of an original asset, for example, an alternative file format, colour space or resolution.
The use of the expression 'version' can be confusing to understand for those new to DAM. In terms of relationships with assets, Renditions are adjacent to assets rather than having any chronological or sequential meaning. Each version of an asset might itself have multiple renditions generated at the time that version was created.
Alternative terms for rendition are derivative files, proxies or surrogates. Rendition has a broader based usage than some of these (proxy especially) and can also describe the process of generating variations to underlying assets.
