Vegas Pro 12 & Broadcast specs
on May 19, 2013 at 12:57:41 pm

I am being asked by a broadcast station to deliver the following file. If I am able to do so, it will be the first time that I will be able to deliver without tapes (which, in the past, I have had to sub out at considerable expense). Do I have the ability to create the following with Vegas Pro 12?

Video Format: 1080i, 29.97 frames/sec (59.94 fields/sec) HD
File Format(s): XDCAM 1080i/60

• XDCAM HQ: 4:2:0 at 35 Mbps MXF (OP1A, self contained)
• Video Codec: MPEG-2 Long GOP, Sony XDCAM compliant
• Field Order: Upper field first
• Audio Format: 48 KHz sample rate, uncompressed
• Reference Tone: -20dBfs
• Operating Level: Peak program levels at -12 to -8 dBfs, nominal –10dBfs
• When a VU weighted meter is calibrated so -20 dBfs tone is 0 VU, program peaks should average 0 VU as well.
Closed Caption must be embedded in file.

We are now supplying NETA with all digital files instead of having to do the XDCam tapes.
Using MXF files in Vegas to create the file. The only way I know to put in captioning to begin with is by using John Rofranos Caption Assistant. After it's been put in, MXF format embeds it.

Roger, are you using the Sony MFX HD422-60i-50Mbps render? I will have a look at John Rofrano's Caption Assistant. Thank you.

Audio: 48,000 Hz, 24 bit, stereo, PCM
Video: 29.970fps, 1920x1080 Upper field first, MPEG HD422
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.000

Bit Rate 50 (CBR) HQ
Profile: 422

Even though Vegas says it can do captioning, there is NO way to do it unless you use Johns Caption Assistant. It would be possible with Vegas alone if you were doing a 30 second commercial or something like that but for a show of any length Caption Assistant is a must.






That's a link to his plug in.

Those settings make sense. Thank you.

Caption Assistant looks like a very handy, well thought out, plug-in.

BTW, nice looking show, Roger.

Hi Allby,
I'm not sure what you're asking and probably can't answer it anyway. I've got a system down that works and beyond that I'm pretty much lost.
