If you wish to deliver your program by file we accept .mov files in H.264 codec only if Closed Captioning is determined not to be required for your program.

For delivery of file based programing that requires Closed Captioning we will ONLY accept .mxf files that conform to Sony XDCAM. We require you send a test file no less than seven days before your air date to confirm playback and CC. If you do not have the ability to delivery your file with CC in a .mxf format we recommend you contact Media Images at 614-410-3000 ext. 105. Media Images can add Closed Captioning to your program and then deliver it to WCCB in the correct codec and file type.

File based programing must be delivered no less than five business days before the schedule air date to allow for conversions if necessary.
