Deliverable specs

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
Frame Rate
Color Sampling
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.

Thanks for the reply.

I am familiar with Streamclip. It seemed to do the job. I have a single .ts file which looks good.

I am going to try to get my colleagues to go ahead with a purchase of Episode Encoder.

In the meantime I may have to change the bit rate or ad a leader/bars. In that case, I would need use Streamclip on the Video_ts folder and make a file, - which I would then "Convert to TS".

Would something like ProRes 422 be the best bet for this? Which I could then add to in FCP.

Thanks in advance,

I'll be trying out different machinations.
