I'm hoping someone can point me to the right places for finding this information...

I know that networks can be picky about their allowable video acquisition and required percentages. I need to know the acceptable cameras, formats, frame rates, etc. for documentary/realityTV distribution on some networks:

Animal Planet

NatGeo

The Travel Channel

...your basic cable television, more or less.


If you could recommend one particular camera that would likely satisfy all the guidelines of most any network, which would it be? Proposed shoot is a modest budget and a pro (handheld) camcorder with a fixed lens would be ideal. I would def need to acquire footage in 4K (UHD). Also, I'm biased toward Panasonic cameras and that's where the bulk of my experience is.

Thanks!
