  • Broadcast File format

    What are a few file types that Broadcast and Cable stations look for today.
    I need to output a few options for a client who does not yet know the stations but I am going out of town and want to provide a few options.

    Usually TV-stations should be pleased with XDCAM HD422 or AVCIntra-100.
    They always want content interlaced or progressive footage as segmented frame encoded according to the country's associated TV-standard frame rate.
    Sadly some stations have Mac-based workflows and sometimes they ask for propritairy Apple ProRes HQ422 QuickTime files.
    If you need a Windows based software that can convert to Apple ProRes HQ422 I suggest you Telestream Switch!
    It works like a charme using V210 codec for intermediate flles.

      There is no foolproof method!

      Check with the station or cable provider ASAP.
      Attached is the Comcast commercial version.
      It's not the same as their program specs!
