Eyeheight experiences outstanding IBC2014 in run-up to October 1 File Delivery Day
was high on the agenda of practically every
we predicted, fast file turnround is becoming increasingly important
thoughout the production and post-production business. The 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."
introduced at IBC were Version 1.5 BroadcastSafePP and BroadcastSafeMC
compliance plug-ins, for Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid Media Composer
respectively. Both incorporate a new Broadcast Evaluate display showing
which parts of a video image need 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.
This was previously an auto-only function. BroadcastEvaluate supports
all common compliance standards. Users can alternatively define their
own compliance standard as an XML file.
new for BroadcastSafePP and BroadcastSafeMC is BroadcastSafeArea which
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, 720/1080 and 2K.
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.
