1. Check your formats
TV and WEB
Your video source should ideally be in ProRes 422HQ 23.98p or 29.97p (avoid interlaced versions)
Color profile 1-1-1 REC709-REC709 (avoid 1-2-1 REC709-GAMMA2.4)
Audio in WAV format if not present on your master
Provide as recorded scripts
wav or high resolution mp3
Before distributing your masters to stations, we will provide you with an MSTR playlist containing all of your captioned messages, which you must approve first. Although it takes less than an hour on average to transcode and distribute a master, avoid tight deadlines and allow two business days before the broadcast date. You need to consider the time it takes for broadcasters to ingest the material and the time it takes for quality control to react to rejections.
We use MSTR.TV for fast encoding and distribution, thanks to online archiving you will have access to several mp4, prores, mxf, as well as SRT, VTT and SCC subtitle files at any time.
