Is 1080 30i Ok for Talking Heads?

I am about to purchase a Tricaster XD300 switcher which only allows recording in 720 60p and 1080 30i. I will be using an EX1 and up to 2 EX3s. And does shooting interlaced affect greenscreen keying?

Thanks

30i would come out as 15 frames per second. Do you mean 60i? 60i would be fine for talking heads viewed but 30i would probably not be acceptable.

I have always had the best green screen results from Progressive frames, having said that, until I had the EX3 I always used interlaced footage with Canon cameras and got good results, although not as good as progressive.
