It seems the article was overly shortened. You almost have to infer some things. HDV as source (who would ever use if for delivery for any kind of work including on broadcast) is heavily compressed.

I think his point about HDCAM is that it's only for final delivery these days and that can come from ProRes 422 HQ file playout, possibly offset dub house rather than purchasing a deck. Basically I think his point is they have no business reason as a post house to purchase and hook up an HDCAM deck to FCPX for output.

I can't speak to current post facilities for broadcast as the last time I was doing that full time I was using DigiBeta (pre HD days) but just as ingest may be centralized away from the NLE, export for broadcast may also be centralized away from the NLE.

BTW this is one reason why I think FCPX is headed towards a media managed server control based system. To me, the metadata potential screams for it. The Event/Project management is fairly primitive because I think it may be handled elsewhere (although it badly needs to be improved in FCPX itself).
