It's similar to MPEG case: DVD (VOB) format is permitted only.

TS is allowed temporary for TV captures only, until we have quality software to author a Blu-ray disc.

HD audience material has to be tested and uploaded in BD format only.

1. Comparison of your 4 MB px camera with the equipment used by TV is a good joke
2. Most HD cameras use .m2t container (= .m2ts).

How it can be the same size using larger byte packets size? 192 vs 188 for .ts. Difference is not big but a few hundred MBs can be saved for an average concert. Also, we like to avoid transcoding .ts > m2ts as current tools are far from being perfect, and errors are possible.
