(London, UK--February 11, 2015) Eyeheight announces a further expansion to its range of broadcast compliance plug-ins with the addition of BroadcastSafeMC8. Designed for use with the latest versions of Avid's widely used Media Composer editing software, Eyeheight's BroadcastSafeMC8 incorporates a Broadcast Evaluate display indicating which parts of a video image require adjustment in order to be fully broadcast compliant.
Eyeheight's BroadcastSafeMC8 displays non-compliant areas of content 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.
BroadcastSafeMC8 comes complete with BroadcastSafeArea which can be used to generate a wide range of safe-area markers for superimposition 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.
Eyeheight produces broadcast-standard technical compliance plug-ins for use with popular video editing software, including Adobe, Apple and Avid systems. Eyeheight also designs and manufactures rack-mountable 3G, 3D and HD-SDI processors for video and audio content origination, quality-assurance, post-production, playout and associated areas. This includes audio descriptors, audio loudness conformers, colour correctors, emergency switchers, mixers and keyers, safe area generators, subtitling decoders, text and graphics generators, timecode equipment, video legalisers and widescreen signal generators. Eyeheight products are available worldwide.
