Eyeheight Updates Plug-In Legaliser for Apple Final Cut Pro X

Eyeheight’s BroadcastSafeFX allows true file-based workflows from concept to playout by enabling users to verify and conform their content prior to submission to any file-based quality control system, all from within their familiar Apple Final Cut environment.

Eyeheight will introduce a design update which supplies timed licenses to clients for a particular project/job. This means that Eyeheight can now satisfy clients' opex requirements.

The BroadcastSafeFX legaliser is designed for use with high end video source files employed in broadcast content production. It supports any combination of file formats and source colour-space available in Apple Final Cut Pro X. Capabilities include composite, RGB, RGB-plus-Y and simultaneous composite-plus-RGB legalising, all with user-adjustable soft clipping at high and low thresholds.

High-precision colour-space conversion allows accurate limiting to ensure gamut compliance while keeping the full gamut available for creative use. Eyeheight’s proprietary clobbeRing non-linear predictive filtering process further reduces visible luminance overshoots common on computer-generated or highly graded content and significantly reduces the risk of content rejection.

BroadcastSafeFX users can select from an extensive range of presets or work in custom mode which gives full access to 15 configurable parameters. Facility administrators can assign which built-in presets are available to users, create new presets or disable the custom option to ensure that users only use approved configurations.

An integral safe-area generator provides an extensive range of broadcast safe-area markers covering all the requirements for SD, HD and 2K, including 16:9 and 14:9 requirements in SD. Administrators can modify the set of markers available to users, add new custom markers or restrict access.
