IMPORTANT: all officially selected videos will be required to upload a broadcast quality version of their file, usually via FTP. If you are unable to supply a broadcast quality file to the client's specifications, your video may be deemed unable to be selected.
Use the below specs as reference only - once selected we will contact filmmakers directly with the exact specs as required by the client:
Codecs: Apple ProRes 422 (HQ)
Scaling: Content may NOT be upscaled from SD
Frame size & rate: 1920x1080 25fps Interlaced/Progressive or 29.97fps Interlaced/Progressive or 23.976fps Progressive (1280x720 Progressive only. Note: may be supplied to broadcast as SD)
Color space: ITU-R BT.709
Audio: Stereo LPCM in either Big Endian or Little Endian, 16-bit or 24-bit, at 48kHz (Audio levels should remain constant at -6db as much as possible. Please prevent audio levels going below -12db.)
Clients often require a quick turnaround for broadcast files. With this in mind please familiarise yourself with creating ProRes files in your editing software of choice.
