      Hi,

      I am working with a client who broadcasts footage in .dv format… Apparently this is what their playout system works with.

      At the moment, due to file transfer time deadlines and size limits, I am sending my files as mpeg… avi takes ages to send thru FTP.

      The files are 15-20 minute long and for actual TV broadcast…

      However, they then need to convert it into their .dv format to be able to play it out…

      Now:

      1- I know I’m losing quality when I export as mpeg, but is there any further loss when they convert into .dv?

      2- Does Premiere Pro CS3 support .dv? Is there any way that I can export the project as a .dv file within Premiere Pro to avoid any further quality loss?

      3- Also, any other suggestions to export the footage with a better qualkity is more than welcome.

      Here are the export settings I use for Adobe Media Encoder:

      FORMAT: MPEG2
      TV STANDARD: PAL
      FRAME SIZE: 720×576
      FRAME RATE: 25
      FIELD ORDER: NON PROGRESSIVE
      PIXEL ASPECT RATIO: 16:9 (1.422)
      PROFILE: MAIN
      LEVEL: MAIN
      BITRATE ENCODING: CBR 8Mbps
      GOP SETTINGS: M FRAMES 3 – N FRAMES 12

      Thanks for all the thoughts…

      Regards

      Instead of going to Export>Media Encoder, go to Export>Movie, select DV AVI and check the properties from there.

      I am not sure that broadcast .DV format and DV-AVI are the same thing.

      .DV in some cases refers to a variation of the Apple .MOV format, really need to get some specs from the client.
