There are different accepted standards for delivery of media to broadcasters, so it’s worth checking before submitting any media. It also depends what the media is for as to the necessity of those formalities or the use of a clock/slate.

Following is one form of programme delivery for the BBC in the U.K. (and included for download in the countdown clock movies)

They specify that at least 20 seconds of countdown is necessary for submission.

(TC denotes Timecode)

TC 09:58:00:00. 90 seconds of colour bars with Line-up tone.
TC 09:59:30:00. Countdown clock/slate with silence on audio tracks.
TC 09:59:57:06 (optional). 2 frames of peak white, with tone on first peak white frame only. (See below for peak white download image.)
Or TC 09:59:57:06. Black / silence.
TC 10:00:00:00. Programme starts.
