What is the best way to deliver 16x9? Anamorphic? or Crop? All of our broadcasters only recieve Betacam SP.

I'd GUESS letterbox, but MY guess doesn't matter.

Ask the individuals you are delivering TO...
they are the ones who need to be able to PLAY it properly.

Yup, you'd better ask the individual stations.

If they intend to broadcast your 16x9 work in high-def, and they can only accept Beta SP, the picture certainly won't look as good as it should.

Now, it IS possible to deliver a 16x9 picture on Beta SP... but it's anamorphic. I have to deliver 16x9 on Beta SP for the display on a big stadium scoreboard. Certainly not recommended: like the stadium folks, the station would have to stretch it back out again on its end.
