If you have ever brought in PAL footage and then used that to create NTSC-based DVD's please let me know. I've got a customer in Atlanta who is a perfect fit for VT[3] to do this for him, but he's really wanting to talk to a customer first (mabye he doesn't believe that VT[3] can do on-the-fly standards conversion?)

Thanks,

Paul

Hey Paul,
Long time no talk. We've done it a few times. I've got a client whose parent office is in England, with branches in 70 countries. We often get footage from the UK or Belgium and transcode (such a big word for "digitizing), then burn DVDs so that the local guys can watch them. We also do the opposite, taking footage that we've created here and burning PAL DVDs for the Euros.
