Hey, new guy here. I'm in the TV business (on the business end) but have recently been assuming more and more technical duties in the office because I'm the best with computers/tech in general.
We are trying to cutback on outsourcing, and would like to be able to convert NTSC <--> PAL.
We generally request our masters as .mov, Apple ProRes 422HQ files, but with the business all around the world, we get everything from DVC Pros to obscure codecs like CineFormHD.
I have been allocated funding to purchase a second iMac for converting, uploading, rendering, etc.
I was thinking of purchasing Final Cut 7 + Nattress G-Converter, but I was wondering what you guys thought about it as compared to any other programs. We want these conversions to be broadcast quality, with minimal loss of quality, and money is not an issue in any way.
I am going to learn the ins and outs of whatever program I decide to go with, but I wanted some expert input here.

Money Quote: "Teranex processing is so well known for quality that it has been mandated by major studios and many US broadcast networks for all master conversions when distributing content for worldwide delivery. "
Surprisingly affordable for that.
Thanks for the quick response, however, that certainly looks out of my depth.
Most of the work we do is from external hard drive to external hard drive, and I was hoping there would be a program for the iMac which would do the job.
But with this blackmagic box, would I just hook it up to the computer, and run through it?
Sorry for any dumb questions, but the extent of my conversion knowledge is pretty much Handbrake haha
