How do I get my video to  ICTV or ICTV PLAY?

If you have access to dropbox you can send us a dropbox link via email. Alternativly, if your video is under 2 Gb, we can you send you a Sharefile link and you can upload your video.  Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will send you details.  If your video is over 2 Gb, give us a call on 08 8952 3118 and we can talk about how to get the video to us. In most cases we will ask you to send through a DVD or a USB drive with your video file.

 

What format does ICTV want?

We would prefer high resolution video files, preferably Pro Res 422 Pal with audio at 48 Khz.  Aspect ratio 16:9. (ICTV will transcode videos to the formats that it requires for various platforms.)  However, if this information is confusing, please just send us a best copy of your video. (Yes, we can rip from DVD.) Alternativly, we can download from your Vimeo or YouTube account if you have a high quality version of your media online already.

 

Titles?

Every video must have titles apart from Music Video Clips or Animations. ICTV can insert generic titles if you provide us with the information, but we much prefer that you create your own titles and credits.

 

Programming not Sponsorship or Promotion

If your video is clearly promoting an idea or organisation, then the material may not be assessed as ‘Programming’, and will therefore not be programmed on Channel 601, however it may still be approved forIndigiTUBE.  If you have a sponsorship campaign or would like ICTV to  consider a promotional video for broadcast, then please refer to our Sponsorship section.

 

Watermarks

ICTV strongly recommends against the use of watermarks or bugs as this may interfere with bugs and graphics used during broadcasts.
