Eyeheight colour correctors and legalisers have been used again for the latest series of the television show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! The 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.
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 realtime control of perceptual loudness and true peak level are also provided.
Eyeheight’s CC-2M colour corrector allows independent realtime 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.
