NTSC to PAL Conversion -2 hour show - What's the fastest way?

What would one recommend in converting two hours of NTSC DV to NTSC PAL? Could I use a TBC or something between the two decks using Component ports? Or am I looking at Final Cut Pro with Nattress Converter to flip it from NTSC to PAL and then layoff to the PAL deck? Right now am I asking about 2 hours because I actually am acuqiring more and the job that will need 56 more hours converted. 2 Hours per show.

They did mention I could get the program tapes in Betacam format versus DV? Could that be more effective?

Willing to rent a deck or other equipment. Just want a fast solution for turning over alot of tapes.

Thanks, -Jeff

NTSC to PAL Transfer

Found that Final Cut can do PAL conversion but will take 3 mintues to render a 30 seconds clip. If you have 2 hours of footage to render it will take sometime. Originally wanted to save on rentals fee's since my AJA I/O LA box can handle component signals.

Decided to get Betacam tapes instead of DV tapes. I will be renting a Standards Converter and PAL deck to do the transfers in realtime.
