I'm wondering if the video quality from video camera Sony HDR-SR1 shot in SD HQ 9Mbps is broadcast television quality? Basically I need to shoot SD video, and since this camera is a hard disk drive, need to import the video from the camera onto the computer and then save it on a flash drive to send it to an external editor. The problem I have is that since Mac doesn't recognize the Mpeg-2 video, I need to import the video to my Mac using the Squared 5 streamclip and the Apple Mpeg-2 decoder Quicktime add on. So if anyone knows if: 1) There is a way to keep the exact same video quality when importing this way, and if so what settings do I need to use on the streamclip? 2) If importing the video and saving it to a flash drive degrades the video quality and makes it not broadcast quality anymore, please let me know. 3) Or if the best solution is to just buy a vid cam with dv tapes. Thanks.
