Hi, is blackbursting always neccassary?
Do you mean running 'house sync' to all your components in an edit / broadcast set-up or something totally different?
I guess I don't understand the question.
Clarify what exactly you mean by 'blackbursting'.

Blackburst-video taping black over the entire tape to maintain a consistent timecode.
You mean "striping". You are stiping and coding a tape when you lay down timecode and black onto a blank video tape.
Blackburst is a video signal (of black) that provides reference to all of the components of a broadcast or edit-room set-up.
You do not need to stripe a tape to SHOOT on it with consistent timecode.
You do not need to stripe a tape if you understand and are using assemble editing for your record master.
You do need to stripe a tape if you are going to use it as an insert-edit-only record master.
