This looks like a page dedicated to analogue 
video to me (something that FFmpeg by definition 
cannot support).
But it actually doesn't matter: I suggest you 
encode whatever you find realistic enough with 
FFmpeg and if the output isn't what you (or 
actually: the broadcaster) expects, you tell 
us (ie command line, complete, uncut console 
output, point to the input sample and explain 
what's wrong).

I am not really convinced a filter is the right 
solution (although it may not be very difficult 
to implement): If FFmpeg does not confirm to 
what you ask it to do, it is a bug anyway and 
should probably not be fixed with a filter...
