I seriously need a class/training in exporting media for the appropriate viewing medium. I am self taught and do ok but I run into issues that eat more time than I think is necessary. For example, we produce a commercial and will upload to a station- what's the best format/way to go? ProRes? H.264? Are there accepted standards? This is what I need to learn.

Check my sig line: I WORK at a TV station.
When local stations are involved, you need to CALL. Ask for the Chief Engineer. Ask him or her what they want for delivery. Ask for delivery specs,
HD: Horizontal & vertical resolution.
SD: Same thing.
Audio: Sample rate (e.g. 44.1 kHz, 48 kH), sample bits (e.g. 16, 24), stereo/mono.
HD video on an SD channel: Letter boxed or Center punched?
That ought to help.
