by Allen Dyke

Films can still be presented on DV tape (The Films Officer will convert these films to MPEG2 with PCM sound to allow archiving).

Standard Definition film must be presented on

  1. a DVD either as a data disc with mpg2 video, PCM or Dolby AC3 sound, or authored to play on a DVD player. The disc must be made using mg2 video 720 pixels by 576 pixels 25fps progressive or 50i interlaced.

  2. On a memory stick as data recorded with mpg2 for video at 25 fps Progressive or 50i interlaced at 720 by 576 pixels

  3. The sound can be either PCM or Dolby AC3.

  4. Make sure that the film is made with the correct aspect ratio ie 16.9 or 4.3

High Definition must be presented on

  1. On a blu-ray / AVCHD disc as a data disc, or Authored to play on a Blu-ray Player

  2. On a memory stick as Data.

Both the above to be rendered into one of the following formats.

Transport Stream.M2TS with video encoded AVCHD 1920 by 1080 pixels at 25FPS Progressive or 50i Interlaced. Sound can be encoded IN PCM or DOLBY AC3

Transport Stream.TS with video encoded AVCHD 1920 by 1080 pixels at 25 FPS Progressive or 50 i interlaced. Sound can be encoded in PCM or Dolby AC3.

Transport Stream.MP4 with video encoded AVCHD 1920 by 1080 pixels at 25FPS Progressive or 50i interlaced. Sound will have to be encoded AAC. This means that the sound will be converted to PCM on archiving.

A Transport Stream is a method of combining (multiplexing) two or more data streams into one data stream. In our case the video & the sound. Each of the above transport streams achieves this objective in different ways.

Smart Rendering or Smart Copy systems must be deactivated on your editor to force it to re-render and not copy and paste the parts of the takes you are using in your film. This is due to when filming; there can be slight differences in the Video encoding system AVCHD depending on the make of the source camera.

The Films Officer can give help on setting up the editor for rendering in the correct format if required
