Well, I don't know about that, but as can be seen from this article the BBC are incredibly short sighted and obviously didn't bother to actually look at how XDCAM worked.

http://tvbeurope.com/pdfs/TVBE_downl...sinessCase.pdf.

Similarly the guys involved with Infinity seem similarly silly with their idea that disc can't store things like spreadsheets, NLE files etc. All completely false. In fact that aspect of XDCAM is one that I've talked up over and over, and is one reason I like it over the other systems such as P2. Original footage, archive, and full project NLE files etc all able to be stored on the same disc.

The gentleman named Wood in that first article you referenced also appears to be very short-sighted. He claims in a paragraph starting at the bottom of page 2 that there are no 'prosumer' cameras that can produce true widescreen which is a big requirement for BBC broadcasters. Has he never heard of the Canon XL2 (PAL version), or Sony's little PDX10? Apparently not. He says 'all' the manufacturers have assured that there won't be a domestic widescreen camera model until everything goes HD.

Hmmm...seems he didn't do his homework.

Urr yeah. But don't forget that at the time the BBC would have been looking into developing that JVC camera the XL2 may well have not been available. Besides, AFAIK the BBC have never used Canon cameras of any kind.

I think this article is at least 5-6 years old.
He is talking about Fast Purple as NLE and that is pretty old.

Good point. I had assumed it was more recent because the BBC have recently ditched Digibeta for their factual programming.
