closed captioning distribution

I didn't see this topic anywhere on this site ~

I'd like to distribute :30 commercials to television stations in Quicktime movie format on DVD.

But I'd also like to include closed-captioning, too.

I realize each station will have differing capabilites - I'm in a relatively large market - many stations nowadays digitize all content and then automatically air it off of a server

So my questions:

1) Is there some way to include closed captioning in a QT file? (I don't think so)

2) Is there a way to send a seperate closed captioning file that the station can digitize and link to run with the commercial?

3) Is there another format that would be better? Like burning the commercial as a DVD movie with closed captioning including - can a television station digitize a DVD movie with the CC stream included?

I'm going to speak with the stations involved, but I wanted to have some idea of what's typically involved.

Thanks.

Bob

Hi there, you might have already seen this but provides a good basic understanding of CC.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Closed_captioning

I expect every TV station is different, but I would expect most would want to ingest the video and closed captions separate. As you say your best bet is to talk to the TV station your footage will be broadcast on - You will then have a definative answer.

Let us know what they suggest.

Cheers,
Ed

I received replies from two TV stations saying they only accept commercial spots on Beta SP or Beta SX videotapes - or through a digital distribution company like DG Fast Channel (which I believe delivers the spots along with the scheduling information to the station's traffic department)

Not what I wanted to hear.
