BBC R&D

Abstract

This document is intended to provide some of the background colour-science justification for the "BBC setup" conditions in some television cameras. Although aimed primarily at HDTV cameras and their use in attempting to mimic and thereby replace film usage, the colour-science applies equally to all forms of video cameras. Two appendices are included, giving details of scanning and compression standards. Details of measurements and preferred setup conditions for specific cameras are available for BBC use. Manufacturers may request access to information about their own cameras, and facilities houses about cameras used on BBC projects.

The testing and tiering of cameras and associated reports have more recently been conducted in accordance with EBU Tech3335 and EBU Recommendation R118, which builds on the work described in WHP034. https://tech.ebu.ch/camtest

and therefore subsequent tests are available on the EBU website. https://tech.ebu.ch/hidden-pages/camtest/CamTestReports04.html
