Help using 16:9 standard def SDI input and outputting DVD in 16:9 SD
on Aug 16, 2009 at 11:55:36 pm

I am using Sony DXC-D50WSH cameras which are 4:3/16:9 switchable. I know they are still standard def, but assumed a native 16:9 would lend itself better to a widescreen final product.

Using the SDI output of a Panasonic AG-MX70 switcher, and maintaining a 16:9 signal from camera to Kona LHe Card SDI input, what is the best workflow to ensure 16:9 DVD? What format must I capture in?

As a side note, I will also be broadcasting the output of the switcher in digital over coax, which adds yet another reason for the 16:9 setting of the camera.

Thanks for any assistance possible.

You can capture in many different formats and still maintain widescreen.
Just go to easy setup and select an animorphic version of one of them. 8 bit uncompressed, 10 bit uncompressed, dv50, prores, all have widescreen ability.
Just capture, edit, output widescreen - u'll be fine.

What is the highest quality format for SD? Im guessing DVCpro 50? Also, any ideas on getting the same program (component output is available) recorded to BETA sp?

Then ProRes 4:2:2, then DVCPro50 (which is 4:2:2 but 8 bit)
