Vidcheck Adds Automated Correction of PSE Flashing to Vidfixer Auto QC and amp; Correction Software Posted: 10/09/2014
Vidcheck Adds Automated Correction of PSE Flashing to Vidfixer Auto QC and amp; Correction Software
Vidcheck, a specialist supplier of software for automated QC and correction of video and audio media files, has announced that its Vidfixer product now includes automated correction of PSE flashing in file based video.
 
All television content intended for broadcast in the UK and Japan is legally required to comply with specifications related to preventing photosensitive epilepsy (PSE), a type of epilepsy in which seizures are provoked by flashing or flickering images. In the UK the Government's Office of Communications (OfCOM) requires that all video is tested for potentially harmful flashing images before it is broadcast. If it fails the PSE tests it must be corrected, or include an accompanying warning that it contains flashing images. Transmitting video that fails the PSE requirements without issuing the requisite warning can incur serious penalties. Similar legislation applies to material before broadcast in Japan, and the international ITU recommendations are contained ITU-R BT.1702.
