Notification, Rights, and Format Required
Due to the high volume of submissions, it may take 6 – 8 weeks for a response. SoCal will contact you if interested in airing your program. If your project is selected, you will be required to sign a “Free Program Offer” broadcast agreement that states you have the right to broadcast all the elements in the program and are not asking for payment. Please do not submit your final video to us before we have sent you our guidelines regarding technical specifications for broadcast. After all specs are met you will be asked to closed caption your program and send us a videotape in either DVC Pro or HD CAM.
