Eyeheight to introduce complianceSuitePP plug-in legaliser for Adobe Premiere Pro at IBC2013

See Eyeheight on stand 8.B97 at IBC2013, Amsterdam, 13-17 September

London, England, 20 August 2013: Eyeheight has chosen IBC2013 as the launch venue for the latest addition to its range of broadcast signal compliance software. The new complianceSuitePP is a plug-in legaliser for Adobe's Premiere Pro timeline-based video editing software.

Compatible with Apple's OS X (Snow Leopard and later versions), Adobe Premiere Pro supports video editing at resolutions of up to 10,240 x 8,192 pixels and up to 32 bits per channel colour in both RGB and YUV. Premiere Pro is part of the Adobe Creative Suite of graphic design, video editing and web development programmes.

Eyeheight's complianceSuitePP adds a complete plug-in legaliser, 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. The legaliser is designed for use with high end video source files used for broadcast content production. It supports any combination of file formats and source colour-space available in Premiere Pro.

complianceSuitePP can perform 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.

complianceSuitePP 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.

Eyeheight's complianceSuitePP will be introduced at IBC2013, Amsterdam, 13-17 September. Exhibiting on stand 8.B97, Eyeheight will be represented by Martin Moore, Steve Crocker and Linda Underwood.
