First of I apologize if this is wrong forum to post this message.

I need to get video files (newscast) daily from other country, right now they are offering video in raw .avi files, but 10 min segment can get over 1gb ant takes too long to download. I want to set-up some kind of semi-automated system that would allow for people working at the local TV station to easily compress video.

1. What kind of codec should i look for (to be good enough for cable TV)?
2. How much megabytes compressed 10 min clip would take?
3. What kind of software would you suggest?

Thanks to everyone for comments and advise.
