Eyeheight Colour Correctors and Legalisers Return to the Jungle
Eyeheight legalisers will also be used during the German follow-on series, Ich bin ein Star - Holt Mich Hier Raus! which will be transmitted by RTL. Both series are produced in 1920 x 1080 high-definition from a production site at Murwillumbah on the edge of a sub-tropical rain forest.
Designed for use in live television content creation and post-production, Eyeheight's LE-2M legaliser ensures that incoming signal video is held within the required broadcast colour-space parameters, such as EBU-R103. Incoming SDI or HD-SDI video is auto-detected and the appropriate legalising format then applied.
The LE-2M incorporates six user memories plus common presets. 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. Automatic real-time control of perceptual loudness and true peak level are also provided.
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.
Eyeheight produces broadcast-standard technical compliance plug-ins for use with popular video editing software, including Adobe, Apple and Avid systems. Eyeheight also designs and manufactures rack-mountable 3G, 3D and HD-SDI processors for video and audio content origination, quality-assurance, post-production, playout and associated areas.
