Avid and Broadcast Color Correction

avid_clr_corr_cntrls-thumb.gif

If you edit for television you have a whole level of color correction issues. You must conform to the broadcast standards. The one over looked issue is your IRE values. You spend a lot of time getting all of your levels perfect and then find out your pedestal black is to low and your whites are too bright. The sure way to fix this after you have watched your scopes to get everything as close a possible is to set you clippers. Avid defaults to 16 -235. In broadcast you need to set your pedestal black to 7.5 IRE and your white to 100 IRE. The main problem is the Avid color correction tool is set to low at the 16 value. You need to set this value to 32 and keep the upper value at 235. The best way to do this is to dedicate top video line to your IRE values this way the whole sequence will be within tolerance. Just do not forget to set the lower value to 32!
