MXF Op1a 50 Mbits, aka Sony XDcam with 8 discrete channels, where channel 1 and 2 are left and right.
UK is different, they want AS-11

Are you talking commercial or regular content? For commercials you also need some more stuff, see here:

This will help you getting it right the first time.

too fast...
It has to be 25 interlaced, even if the content is progressive.

As you may already know, Europe is a big country!😉

Which country are you talking about? Also are you delivering to a particular network? Each of them have some specifics they want you to follow (file format, codec, etc...)

If you don't have the information yet, I would recommend to create a master in the most common format of the countries your targeting so that you can later create deliverable without sacrificing quality... full 4K, 25fps, progressive, ProRes, DNxHD for example...

Hope this help... a little

Nope... I am just saying keeping your master as pristine as you can... I just mentioned 4K in the case your post-production workflow was all 4K... if you are working in HD, keep everything in HD... with the least compression and transcoding as possible so that you can create deliverables as needed when you know the requirements of your final medium... for my 25+ years in the business, I have delivered shows to the USA, western European countries (including France, UK, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium...), Russia, Asia (including South Korea and China) for those I can remember 😉

[Nitai Lev-Oren] "what needs to be the preferred bitrate and codec?"

Just ask for the delivery specifications for the organization receiving the file. The specs vary from organization to organization, you see.

Your question is a lot like asking, "How do I encode for broadcast on Mars?"
