Download for broadcast - suggested formats?

Client want us to make SD clips available for download to broadcasters worldwide.

What are recommended video distribution formats in NTSC & PAL which will work fine with broadcasters today?

File size is not a problem, clips will be transported over a global content delivery network.

They are not DV clips, most likely we will digitize to 4:2:2 uncompressed if we can slam a sufficient number of drives into the raid.

If bandwidth is not an issue for you and your users, I would make the 4:2:2 uncompressed files available through your network, making sure you are not using a proprietary codec, allowing your users to view the files without specific installation.

You might also want to create a low-resolution version of your clips, allowing your users to preview the file before deciding to download the HUGE file.

Quicktime with animation codec seems to work well for most apps. If on a Mac, make sure you have a file extension for Windows users.
