Today, broadcasters and theaters accept videos and films as file-based deliverables. We’ve got you covered and have experience with a wide variety of file types. However, broadcast networks and distributors sometimes still include videotape masters recorded to exact specifications in their list of deliverable requirements. Videotape mastering is old school, and can feel like a daunting task for producers and filmmakers who don’t have video machine experience or access to the decks and support gear necessary to create HD and SD masters. Fortunately, Chicago HD is here to help make the process easy.
Our Sony machines record broadcast quality high definition and standard definition video with up to 12 channels of audio, closed captioning, video legalization and V-Chip insertion. If we don’t own the deck you need, we’ll rent one for the job. HD mastering is also a great way to archive your program for the long-term. Utilize our mastering services and avoid the headaches and costs of renting a tape deck and attempting to do the job yourself.
