Exchange media: DVC-Pro or DV-Cam?



This is what my crystal ball shows. DigiBeta will still be around for quite
a while to come, as it seems to be an extremely popular transmission format
for broadcasters.

The professional formats derived from the consumer DV system are targetted
mainly at newsgathering, and so may not make much of an impact into the
high end post business. Of the two, Panasonic's DVCPro is so far ahead of
the pack (and technically it is perfectly adequate for the job) that I
think Sony's DVCam will never catch up.

But of course I could be wrong.
