ITV Deploys Eyeheight Compliance Legalisers For World Cup Coverage

News Image
UK television channel ITV has deployed Eyeheight compliance legalisers to help broadcast coverage of the 2018 Russia World Cup.

The tournament begins on 14 June and runs until 15 July.

A total of eight LE-2M channels housed in two 1U embedded web server chassis are now on site ready.

The LE-2M legalisers are designed to ensure that the levels of all signals arriving from onsite cameras or remote feeds are kept safely within a user-specified chroma gamut. This is vital both to ensure compliance with industry-set limits and to prevent overload further along the transmission chain.

Eyeheight compliance products have been used at many sports-related events, notably for coverage of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year, the London Marathon and the Grand National.

The Eyeheight LE-2M auto-detects incoming SD-SDI or HD-SDI video at 1080i/50/59.94, 720p/50/59.84, 625/50 or 525/59.94 and applies the appropriate legalising format. It then ensures that the incoming video is held within user-selected colour-space parameters: RGB, YUV, PAL or NTSC composite, or RGB-and-composite combined. Legalisation can be performed to conform with EBU-R 2003 standard SDI settings and/or 7.5 IRE or 0 IRE pedestal. Six user memories and common presets are provided.

Additional features of the LE-2M legaliser include Eyeheight's unique clobberRing automatic luma overshoot and undershoot suppression together with luma and chroma gain, black level adjustment, hue rotation, adjustable clipping levels and soft-clipping knee levels. An 'out-of-gamut' indication feed displays overshoot or undershoot severity and shows the user where on the picture any signal correction is being performed.

Up to six LE-2M legalisers can be housed in a 1U Eyeheight FB-9E smart chassis with an integral web server and optional FP-9 front control panel.
