Firewire Output with TC to Tape Options?
June 07, 2006 12:54PM

I am outputting a show for cable broadcast on Discovery Science and want to know what my options are for decks that I can output the show with sequence timecode to via Firewire 400 or 800. So far, my understanding is that this is not possible with DigiBeta, but is with DVCPro50 or DVCProHD. Are there better options? Thanks.

No digibeta deck that I know of has a firewire port. Better option? Meaning what? Cheaper? Better quality?

Have you checked the delivery requirements for Discovery? What do they want? My guess is a digibeta master, not DVCPRO 50.
So, either you're dubbing your master (not a good idea) or you should buy an AJA box/card or blackmagic card to do a proper output. The cost of thoses cards is approximately the cost of a bunch of dubs.

Good luck.
