Okay that is a little different than Capture Now of the first post. :-)

I know you are looking for exact info (which if I was guessing is going to be out there) but to me the difference is in camera specs. Going from SD DV to HD Intra. The other factor on the down side of P2 is storage and backup. There is a lot of time and cost involved that doesn't exist in the tape world.

Also the time to transcode the P2 will depend on the system used. An iMac or a 8-core will capture at the same rate but a new fast Mac Pro will transcode a lot faster.

I think you would be best served to go rent a P2 camera, and put the work flow through its paces. Time YOUR system with ingest.

There is something comforting about Tape that you just don't have with P2 (or any card based system) The time to get to the editing bay is just one of the many things you need to think through.

Sorry to be so off the point, hope it is of some help.
