    My advice is to keep also the original tapes what ever codec you choose!

    ProRess 422 will be perfect. Don´t bother with ProRess HQ or LT or anything, just plain ProRess!
    I´ve been using it for similar cases for years with no problem.

    You must select the right audio sample rate (32khz or 48khz) for capture preset.
    If Your tape is for example 32khz and You capture it as 48khz You most likely will lose the lip sync after few minutes.

    Greetings from PAL-land Finland!
    Things are SO much simplier here compared to NTSC…
    OK, Rich, are you sure Your camera can´t shoot 25fps natively?
    If it is XDCAM EX, it should be able to operate ANY frame rate, so use it! Then again You can face a flicker problem if You use lights on set, they are 60 hertz and your camera is now 50/25 hertz.
    Since XDCAM-EX is hd-only camera I recommend to shoot 720p50 if delivery is on pal 50i and use Compressor to create fields, it makes a really nice job.
    Then again if delivery is pal 25p, shoot 720p25 and use Compressor just for downscaling and re-sampling image to desired format (ProRess, Un-Compressed, DV-Cam…) .

    You should ask the client what they want BEFORE You do any decisions!!

    -Do they want HD or SD?
    -Interlaced or Progressive?
    -If SD, do they want 4/3 or 16/9?

    By the way, here in Europe 16/9 sd is ALWAYS anamorphic, newer letterbox.

    I will be happy to try to find answer for You so feel free to ask!

    It works only with light- and bright-colored objects of very simple form and definitely not with a person. It is impossible to put lights so that there is no shadows in her/his face. If she/he for example opens mouth the result will be a hole through the head! And there are eyes with black in the middle and even nose has two dark holes… You should put many tiny little lamps in to the head! (And how do I know this? Because in my youth I was stupid enough to try this with a person, well, not quite a person but a human shaped object known as a politician. I was actually quite happy to make him sweat like a pig in those huge amounts of lighting!!)
    Forged it and use green screen.

    Low hours for head, it should have at least 1000 hours to go!
    Sony DXC-537A was a great camera at it´s time (early 90´s), I lowed it. But how it can cope today depends so much of what You are going to require from it!
    Anyway, have fun and good luck!

    If You can find both and they are in same kind of technical condition take BWV. UVW-series make a lot noisier picture (sn-ratio), and the sound is poor (if I can remember right it was in Sony´s tech-specs something like BVW linear tracs were 20 – 18 000 hz and UWV was 50 – 14 000 hz and there is “hi-fi”-tracs also in BVW 20-20 000hz).

    They are good, as are every others also in that price range.
    But are they better than Sony´s, or Ikegami´s, and so on, that is a personal opinion that You have to decide in A DEMO!
