Purpose for a 59.94 HDCAM SR Tape
on Sep 10, 2010 at 5:21:25 pm

My producer is asking me what the purpose of a 59.94 output would be and I don't know. The film was shot on RED, at 23.98. He's outputting on HD CAM SR 23.98 and is asking if he should do an output at 59.94 aswell. Is there any good reason to output at 59.94.

A broadcaster might require it on their specs. (though, in reality they should be able to add the proper pull down to get there on their decks)

The only reason to do that is if someone specifically asks for it. Otherwise a 23.98 HDCAM SR master is great. You can dub/convert to any other format from that...even PAL.

Broadcast networks require this as a standard. There aren't any or very, very few who are set up to broadcast 23.98 media. We will take it but it will get converted prior to air. Consequently, any network broadcasting 1080i will expect an HDCam or HDCam SR as all the automation, servers etc. will clock to TC expressed as time of day. Simple explanation but that's how your show starts on time and so on.
However, now many networks are also accepting file delivery and will do so more and more in the future. At this time expect that you'll still need to deliver a 59.94 interlaced file and if not it will get converted for playout.

Thanks guys. Sounds like my producer may not need it, all depending on where he goes. I'll fill him in and leave it to him to make the final call.

[Muzafar Malik] "Sounds like my producer may not need it, all depending on where he goes."

WRONG! If you DON'T make one, he'll definitely need one. Do yourself a favor and plan on creating a 59.94 master NOW! There are plenty of reasons why you WILL need it.

Did you consider? Promo clips for broadcast. (I can guarantee you that they'll want 59.94). I can think of a dozen other reasons... but that's YOUR job, not mine.
