    The electronic delivery format, as designed by the Digital Production Partnership is AVC-I 100mbs.

    A couple of things.

    What is the content and which broadcasters are you delivering to?

    If you are deliveiring a commisioned programme to any of the major broadcasters, then you should have been given a set of programme delivery specs. 2ndly you need to check that the station will accept material shot on your 600d - not all will.

    If its news. Import to FCP X, let it optimise media then export as pro-res 422LT or XDCam HD 422 and stick it on a drive - they will work it out.

    That's the broadcasting standard for capture.

    The 600D is not on the list of approved cameras as set by the BBC. You can't cheat the system by exporting at a higher bit rate and trying to pass it off as 50Mb/s footage.
