I posted this in the Broadcast video section.
But I am also posting here, because what I have now to work with is Studio Pro and things like MPEG Streamclip.
I am by background an editor, but I have joined a start-up for TVOD.
We are getting content from some Asian companies and will deliver to some on demand providers.
I got some specs which I do understand. However, the first few titles have come as formatted DVDs.
Here are the specs:
Codec: MPEG 2 Long GOP
Container: MPEG 2 Transport Stream
Video Bit Rate - 8-20 Mbps CBR
Audio Codec - AC3 (2 Ch)
For Dual Audio use AC3 streams:
Stream 1: English 5.1
Stream 2: English 2.0
Stream 3: LAS 2.0
Audio Sample Rate
1 second of black at head and tail
Again, If I were exporting from FCP, I would be able to do this with no problem. But...
Am I correct that we'll need some additional software/hardware solutions in order to take from a DVD (with VOB files) and provide these specs?
I know there are solutions like Digital Rapids or Telestream. But is there a way to do this just for one or two titles?
I need to rip the DVD, and then stitch the files together.
I may be Way Way off on this. But I hope you can tell me what I am missing so that I can convince the other people here that we need to invest in a hardware solution.
