The HVX is the wisest choice because it does what you do now and it CAN do what you will probably need before too long.

You didn't tell us what you're producing so we can't advise you on any of that. I have a client that we do quite a bit of work for and we have a 13 year library of footage for them. They want what we shoot today to match what we did 13 years ago. Talk about pain. Yikes.

As for sending clips to stations, the networks want HDCAM or D5, both very expensive, or they can accept files from DG Fastchannel, which is a distribution company. You upload a file to them and they retransmit it to the stations. Are your stations local or national. You didn't specify.

Before long. almost all material will go by wire and not tape.
