MPEG artificats in analog cable!? [Oct. 11th, 2005|08:17 pm]

Why the hell do I see MPEG artifacts during commercials on analog cable?

Is the new way to distribute commercials to studios via crappy MPEG files?

Lame. Not that I care about commercial quality much, but I hate this "digital" world being used to lower costs more than increasing quality. Kinda depressing.

MPEG isn't standard, but a lot of studios are heading in that direction. It's cheaper and easier to e-mail an MPEG of the ad then to have dozens of copies of the Beta SP or 1/2" tapes dubbed and then messengered/mailed. And ad agencies will find the absolute cheapest way to go when it comes to distributing copy.
