Eyeheight BroadcastSafePP plug-in legalizer for Adobe Premier Pro now in production

London, England, November 19, 2013: Eyeheight announces that its new BroadcastSafePP plug-in legalizer for Adobe's Premiere Pro is now in production and deliverable.

Designed for use with Apple desktop and laptop computers running OS X (Snow Leopard and later versions) and Windows (XP and upwards), BroadcastSafePP is a complete plug-in legalizer, safe-area generator and graphic measurement toolset. It enables users to verify and conform their content prior to submission to any file-based quality control system, all from within their familiar Premiere Pro graphic interface. 

Eyeheight's BroadcastSafePP can perform composite, RGB, RGB-plus-Y and simultaneous composite-plus-RGB legalizing, all with user-adjustable soft clipping at high and low thresholds. Precise chroma-space conversion and accurate limiting ensure compliance while keeping the full gamut available for creative use.

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 only approved configurations are implemented.

An integral safe-area generator provides an extensive range of broadcast-safe area markers covering all the requirements for standard-definition, high-definition 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.

Compatible with high-end video source files used for broadcast content production, BroadcastSafePP supports any combination of file formats and source chroma-space available in Premiere Pro.

Adobe Premiere Pro can perform video editing at resolutions of up to 10,240 x 8,192 pixels and up to 32 bits per channel color in both RGB and YUV. Premiere Pro is part of the Adobe Creative Suite of graphic design, video editing and web development software.
