When submitting to a broadcaster, you should check with them to ask what format they prefer. Often, the required format is:

  • DigiBeta
  • 4:3 FHA (full height anamorphic)
  • clocked
  • colour bars for 1 minute, 30 sec clock, 3 sec black before the first frame of audio or video
  • ensure that your colourspace is legal for broadcast

One possible way of configuring your timecode:

  • 09 57 45 00 = Black
  • 09 58 00 00 = Bars & Tone
  • 09 59 00 00 = Black
  • 09 59 20 00 = 40 Second clock
  • 09 59 57 00 = Black
  • 10 00 00 00 = Programme Start
  • Plus at least 1 minute of black on end.
