Different Formats for Different Outlets
Sometimes it seems like there are no standards in this industry and that every station has its own unique delivery requirements. Some stations require a tape deliverable, and that can mean anything from BetaSP to D-5. Others insist on a digital file deliverable, and that can mean anything from an Apple ProRes to an MPEG2 Program Stream – often at very particular specs. Whether your program is going to one or several stations, we can simplify your delivery process. Just send us your master on whatever format is easiest for you, and we’ll do the rest. Using broadcast level decks and state-of-the-art hardware and software, our professionals will convert your program to whatever delivery format(s) you need and encode your closed captions or subtitles to that format.
Backup Your Tape Library
If your program library is still on tape, there is never going to be a better time to back it up than now. Even modern tape formats have a limited lifespan, and that can vary dramatically based on storage conditions.Current best practices call for an uncompressed preservation master file, and a mezzanine file (sometimes referred to as a production master) for editing and generation of derivative access copies.
Using state-of-the-art equipment, our professional technicians will create preservation master and mezzanine files designed to work best with your current platform. We can also capture and archive existing closed captioning metadata. Of course, if your library is not yet closed captioned we’d be happy provide you with that service as well!
