London, England, January 27, 2014:
Eyeheight LE-2M legalisers and CC-2M colour correctors have
contributed to the successful production of the latest I'm a Celebrity
- Get Me Out of Here series, broadcast on ITV in the UK and channel 3e
in Ireland. Eyeheight legalisers are also being used during the German
follow-on series Ich bin ein Star - Holt Mich Hier Raus! which is
currently being transmitted by RTL.
Both series are created in 1920 x
1080 HD at a jungle camp in Australia. Familiar to the shows' many
viewers, the camp is located on the edge of a sub-tropical rain forest
stretching from the Numinbah nature reserve to the Springbrook
The Eyeheight LE-2M auto-detects
incoming SDI or HD-SDI video and applies the appropriate legalising
format. It then ensures that incoming signal video is held within the
required broadcast colour-space parameters. Six user memories plus
common presets are provided. Additional legalisation features include
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. The LE-2M also provides automatic real-time control of
perceptual loudness and true peak level.
Eyeheight’s CC-2M colour corrector
allows independent real-time adjustment of red, green and blue
component levels, master gain, lift, gamma and hue. A preview output
provides a configurable split screen showing processed and unprocessed
picture. The CC-2M has a dedicated control panel which can be used to
control up to six plug-in modular colour correction cards in a
single-rack-unit intelligent chassis with easy channel switching. Up
to eight panels can be networked. The system also includes a
maintenance mode to assist installation.
'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me out of
Here!' is a reality television series in which celebrities compete.
Originally developed in Britain by ITV Studios and first shown in
2002, it is produced by ITV Studios and licensed globally. Viewers
vote in the first week for bushtucker trials and in the second week
for who they want to stay in the camp. Money is raised for charity
with a donation being made from every call. The last remaining
celebrity, after others have been evicted, is crowned King or Queen of
