London, UK, 2 July 2014: Support Partners, one of Britain's leading providers of broadcast related systems and services, has ordered seven BroadcastSafePP legaliser plug-ins for Adobe Premiere Pro together with seven USB single-licence keys.

Using BroadcastSafePP, they can verify and conform their content quickly and easily prior to submission to any file-based quality control system, all from within their familiar Premiere Pro graphic interface."
