Eyeheight has launched complianceSuiteFC, a new set of filter and generator plug-ins compatible with Apple Final Cut Studio and Final Cut Express.
The suite enables Final Cut users to generate true file-based work-flows from concept to playout by verifying and conforming footage prior to submission to any file-based quality-assurance system, all from within a familiar Final Cut environment.
According to Eyeheight Sales Director Martin Moore, The complianceSuiteFC includes very powerful tools that ensure legalization and graphics compliance across multiple platforms. The tools enable post production staff to guarantee that programmes and interstitials are fully compliant. The interface is comfortable and familiar and provides extremely precise measurements and controls and, therefore, peace of mind.
The latest update from Eyeheight was released within days of the publication of new Digital Production Partnership (DPP) specifications, a major technical collaboration between top UK broadcasters that provides specific legalization and safe-area settings to meet all DPP requirements as well as the latest SMPTE, ARIB, EBU and ITU graticule specifications.
Included in the suite are legalEyesFC, a precision, fully vectorized floating-point video legalizer plug-in optimised for use with high end video source files. legalEyesFC exploits the floating-point 4rfl and floating-point RGB render formats and supports any combination of file formats and source colour-space available in Final Cut.
legalEyesFC control enables users to choose from extensive built-in presets, or work in custom mode with full access to 15 customization parameters. Facilities administrators can configure which presets are available, create new presets, and even disable the custom option to ensure that only approved configurations are available.
safeEyesFC is a safe-area generator plug-in that 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. Eyeheights history of making hardware broadcast safe-area generators ensures that its markers are precisely where the user would expect them to be.
