Perhaps you should ask them to specify their second choice.
There are many options, but H.264 seems universally bulletproof.
H.264 is a good choice, but I believe it is a compressed format. Would you perhaps know the best uncrompressed quicktime settings?
H.264 is NOT a good choice to master to.
The video industry generally uses DNxHD (created by Avid) and Prores (created by Apple) as mastering codecs. Many clients insist on them.
But since they are reliant on Quicktime they can be problematic (especially Prores) for PC users.

In my opinion, there aren't any.
You can use 'Uncompressed YUV. or 'Animation' or 'Component'...
HUGE file sizes for not much quality increase.
To avoid sending a lot of huge files for testing,
I would send a max bitrate H.264 and be done with it.
(You really should ask them for a second preference.)

If they can install DNxHD on the projection system, I wholeheartedly agree!
If you dont send them a codec they request, you run the risk of them not accepting / playing it. Never assume anything. Talk to them about your situation.
