Eyeheight Announces Successful IBC2014

News Image
Eyeheight has reported a successful International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, held during the immediate run-up to the UK's October 1 File Delivery Day.

"FD-Day was high on the agenda of practically every UK visitor we talked to," comments Eyeheight's Managing Director. "It will also affect overseas production companies creating programmes for UK-based broadcasters, and not before time given that the whole world is now moving away from couriered tape to IP-based content delivery.
"Our BroadcastSafe audio and video legalisation plug-ins allow editors to ensure their files meet the relevant national compliance standards before being wired back to the client or straight to the broadcaster.
"As 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."
Also 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.
Also 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.
