Telestream Episode and I have a preset as well specifically for DG which I've been using to deliver spots for years. If you're delivering spots you should be able to afford Episode. There are very few encoders that will insert the proper Vertical Blanking interval to get a 720x480 or 720x486 to 720x512. If you're getting a 15% agency rate for doing the media buy all it takes is about a $3000 buy to pay for Episode.

Okay, thanks for that! Would it be necessary to buy Episode Encoder Pro? Or could I get by with just Episode Encoder?
