Any experience in encoding for Mantis MC?

I have to encode a 2 1/2 min presentation cut in FCP at 1080i for a Mantis MC box just installed at a local museum. They've never used the thing before, and have no idea how to encode for it.

Anyone have a cookbook for this box?

It accepts MPEG-2 (ATSC). I think Popwire Compression Master can handle the job, Apple Compressor can't.

If HD MPEG-2 encoding is your primary goal and concern, then bar none, the MainConcept Mac encoder will do the job, or Canopus ProCoder 2 on the windows side. Compression Master 3 currently has a limitation on output limited to either the same as source (up to 1080p), or if scaling is involved, then 1200x900. This should be fixed shortly though.
