This technical specification is intended for use when uploading broadcast quality files for TV streaming platforms that do not require local clearance body approval.
All files uploaded to Peach Connect are immediately run through an Auto QC process. To ensure files are not rejected please adhere to the guidelines below.
|Frame size||1920 x 1080|
|Frame rate||29.97 fps|
|Interlacing||Upper Field First|
|GOP Length||15 (M=3, N=15)|
|Format||PCM (Little Endian)|
|Channels||2 (1 channel per stream)|
|Sample Rate||48 kHz|
|Bit Depth||16 bits / 24 bits|
Files must be exact duration; TVC content only. No pre or post roll such as clock/slate, bars, black, hold, freeze or audio tone is required.
Levels must be in accordance with ITU BT.709 for HD content, and EBU R103-2000 recommendations:
Luma = Level 16-235 (not RGB 0-255 level), equivalent to 0% - 100% or
0mV - 700mV. Chroma = Level 16-240, equivalent to maximum 100% RGB.
All content should be upper/first field dominant throughout and must be free of encoding artefacts, dropout, glitches, blocking, interlace issues or excessive aliasing and considered broadcast quality throughout.
The audio Maximum True Peak level must not exceed -2 dBTP max.
It should also be free of any distortion, glitches or excessive sibilance and must be in phase and in sync with the video throughout.
