sales director Martin Moore headed to the Creative Pro User Group's 13th
Annual Las Vegas SuperMeet, held at the Riviera Hotel during the April
2014 NAB Show. Eyeheight promoted its plug-in broadcast legalisers for
Adobe Premier Pro, Apple Final Cut X, Apple Final Cut 7 and Avid Media
Composer 7, plus ITU 1770-X audio leveling software for Apple Final Cut
In the run-up to IBC, Eyeheight announced a major expansion to the capabilities of its BroadcastSafe compliance plug-ins for Avid's Media Composer and Adobe's Premiere Pro post-production software.
1.5 BroadcastSafeMC (for Media Composer) and BroadcastSafePP (for
Premiere Pro) both incorporate a new Broadcast Evaluate display
indicating which parts of a video image require adjustment in order to
be fully broadcast compliant. Non-compliant areas of content are
displayed in a user-definable colour with the option of manual or
automatic correction, giving editors greater choice in the way they
work. Previously, this was an auto-only function. BroadcastEvaluate
supports all common compliance standards. Users can alternatively define
their own compliance standard as an XML file.
new for BroadcastSafeMC and BroadcastSafePP, BroadcastSafeArea allows a
wide range of safe-area markers to be superimposed over the video
monitor display. BroadcastSafeArea supports a multitude of standards
including SMPTE, EBU and DPP, in 525/625 standard definition, 720/1080
high definition and 2K line formats. Also included is a centre marker
plus a measurement utility to ensure minimum text height conformance in
commercials. Any marker colour can be assigned by the operator.
at IBC itself, BroadcastSafeFCPX is a plug-in video legaliser which
works seamlessly with Apple's Final Cut Pro X editing software.
faster-than-realtime conformance capability offered in BroadcastSafeFCPX
gives Apple Final Cut Pro X users a great speed advantage over their
competitors. Media files can now be processed on a modern
high-specification Apple desktop computer faster than it takes to view
rather than typically four times longer than real-time on a lower-spec
machine. Faster processing means faster delivery of completed content
and higher operational efficiency throughout the business chain.
