Any info would be helpful...

Hi Everybody,
I'm new here and new to this stuff. I'm in the process of putting together a Fishing TV show, and don't know what all this stuff means, I just know fishing. Anyway here's my starting question, to make video "broatcast compliant" does it have to be shot in DVCAM or can it be shot in consumer DV and be made "broadcast compliant" later in programs like Liquid Pro ??? Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

DVCam is a physical recording format and has nothing to do with the quality of the content of the DV stream.

Consumer DV camcorders are usually not adjustable enough to deliver the level of video you want in the wide range of conditions you may find in fishing.

Any video can be 'made' broadcast compliant. But your goal is to deliver good video and that has to start with good video footage.

First: I've renamed your thread to indicate what you are doing
a bit more. I've also moved it to a general forum since it is not
about editing.

If you want it to be broadcast "compliant" then I assume you also
want it to be broadcasted. What formats a TV station supports
depends on the station. So you might need to get the footage
to them on betacam. But they may also support DV. That's the
first question I would get answered.

As Mike pointed out there is a lot more to this then just point,
shoot, edit and deliver.

I can imagine ND filters and circular polarizer might come in handy
with all that water. Even a graduated ND might help to punch
out certain things.

The first thing to do is learn whatever camera you have to the
max. It is important to get the best footage possible before
going to post production. Again, an ND filter or circular polarizer
might help to cut back on light and reflections.

Then after this is over you will need to transfer this footage to
your computer and edit it. Probably record over a narrative track
(which I see a lot in fishing video's) and perhaps do post production
to add titles or do color correction.

After this you can export to your final format which goes to the
TV station.

If you are going to be interviewing people or if people are going
to be talking to the camera whilst fishing I would also invest into
a good audio setup.

Each of these "questions" I posted here are things that have
been answered a lot of times, so please try a couple of searches
on your specific questions through the search feature on the
upper right of the screen first. If you cannot find a good answer
and you want to ask something about audio equipment (as I
pointed out above) go to our audio forum and ask the question
there. That way you get a lot more people reading it and get
the question out to people who know more about that area.

For general broadcast questions you can continue on this thread.
