Master delivery format for HV20

I shot a feature with my HV20, and it's 94 minutes long, so what do I deliver (to the distributor) the final program on? There are no mini-DV or HDV tapes that go past 90 minutes, are there? Also, is it possible to transfer the file from right off of my Hard drive to HDCAM? If so, how would I prepare the format for such a transfer? Thanks.

I helped a film company who shot their feature film with XL H1, HDV that is and it was two hours long.

We used Blackmagic Decklink HD Extreme with FCP with HDV timeline, output from Decklink HD's HDSDI to HDCAM. The transfer went fine and the film lab was surprised with the result. We had to separate it to two tapes tho.

I had few people provided opinions here in the forum which I really appreciate.

I hear in U.S., some labs take the data on a hard drive directly. Like Ray mentioned, you can save 50GB of contents back up on Bluray as data. It takes about 12 hours to make the disc though.

Oh, and if you, I assume you did, shot with 24 frame mode, then transferring to FCP from HV20 would not assure which field to start upon capturing. Just capture as 1080/60i anyway, then conduct reverse telecine with CinemaTool with the right field setting and the correct start frame of the cadence. If you get to it then I can help you figure that out by giving me the first few seconds of the captured footage.

HDCAM is the world's most common format for HD broadcast masters. A film distributor should have no problem accepting an HDCAM master.
