The Broadcast Safe filter – in the Effects Browser – prevents white levels from exceeding safe parameters when sending programs to broadcast, cable or DVD. The problem is that when you apply it like any other effect, the protection you expect doesn’t work.
In this short video tutorial, Larry Jordan explains what the Broadcast Safe filter does, how to apply it and how to determine if it is working. He also explains when to use the Broadcast Safe filter and when to adjust gray-scale levels using the Color Board.
