      I need to know what is the European Broadcasting Standards. What is the format, scan type etc of a HD video file most European TV stations accept?

      Just like here in North America, (almost) every station is different so you have to ask each one what their standards are and what they’ll accept.

      Thank you for your reply.

      Is HD MOV Interlaced format common in America? The TV station insist that the MOV file isinterlaced.

      Over here, stations broadcast in 720p or 1080i. One station I deal with wants interlaced MOV. The other one wants interlaced MXF files.The standard is that there are no standards πŸ™

      Where can I find a video converter which converts HD video to interlaced MOV formats.

      You haven’t given me any information to go on so I’ll keep this very basic.
      Ideally you have your editor render out your video in the desired format. That way you maintain maximum quality.

      Where did the file come from? YouTube, a production house, somewhere else?

      If you’re using an NLE like Premiere or Final Cut, then render the project out again to meet your specific needs. I use Sony Vegas Pro and do this all the time as each project may require different video formats depending on where it’s going to be used and seen. Vegas doesn’t do MOV files so that’s why I can’t recommend using it.

      I use Cyberlink Power Director 14 which is good editing software and not too complicated. But unfortunately it does not produce interlaced video format. So am using Adobe Media Encoder CS4 to convert the M2TS final video to MOV Interlaced HD. However when I set the Encoder with Upper Field First for Interlacing, the final MOV HD file Scan Typ-e is PROGRESSIVE and not INTERLACED. I do not know why.

      I thank you for your patience and reply. I have contacted Cyberlink and they informed me that their editing software does not produce interlacing video.

    • #213411

      I haven’t used either piece of software so sorry but I can’t help you there.
      Try starting a new thread with a different title and see if anyone on here can help. I know from reading this forum that there are a lot of Cyberlink and Adobe users so hopefully someone will be able to help you.
      Good luck.
