    Best codec to compress HDCAM to? - Windows

    zm15 Level 1

      I have 1.5 TB of HDCAM footage on an external hard drive that I need to compress to a smaller footprint to edit with - Limited space on the edit computer.

       

      I'm using windows 7 and premiere pro cs5 with a MPE Card.

       

      I would use Pro Res if I was on a Mac, so I need a good equivalent on the PC side.

       

      What's a good codec to compress this footage and edit with that will redice the file size to that close to Pro Res 422 LT - which is about ~40GB/Hour  ?
