I am so happy that you posted this, because now I have
an opportunity to yell at you, and your company.

Guess what - you have technical problems. Guess what, you live
in NYC, where there are COUNTLESS qualified video engineers, countless
qualified professional post houses, and countless places to buy or rent
a waveform monitor for you to analyze what is going on.

Guess what - YOU HAVE TO HIRE SOMEONE, or BUY SOMETHING, or RENT SOMETHING
to figure out what is going on. Your crap at the bottom of the screen can be
anything - "head switching noise" (which was prevalent from older VTR's with TBC's in them),
or blanking errors, or something else. Even I could not diagnose what is going on
unless I saw it on a waveform monitor to see if it was legal.

This is exactly what broadcasting is about, and this is exactly what standards are about
and using professional people with professional equipment is about.

Will your stuff get rejected - ABSOLUTELY. Do you need to figure out what is going on -
ABSOLUTELY. This is done by all of what I have mentioned before -

1) Hire a freelancer that knows broadcast spec, or a freelance engineer
2) Rent or buy a waveform monitor (no, not the one built into FCP or your AVID)
3) go to one of the 1000 post houses in NY that have the staff and equipment that can
analyze this for you.

I used to hate all these standards, but I now realize, that this is what keeps hi end places
in business.
