NTSC/PAL Sony VX1000 w/ Casablanca Editor ??

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread


I have recently purchased Sony VX1000 DV camera (NTSC) and I'm planning to purchase a 060 CB w/ Firewire immediately. My question is in regards to NTSC and PAL as it turns out ( all of a sudden ) I am moving to Australia (PAL)!

Can I go ahead and purchase a NTSC Casablanca to go with my camera (already have) and edit then do a conversion from NTSC to PAL if it is to be broadcast in OZtralia? Will there be a loss in quality ?, can it be converted? , is there hardware available for me to convert myself that is affordable?, do you take it somewhere to be done? Does having a IEEE1394 Firewire set up negate this potential situation by being able to direct feed into Pal or NTSC formats? (Am I way off????) Please enlighten me if you have constructive knowledge or experience to share.

I would be very grateful,

Thanks in advance,
