Re: HD Safe Title?

I say again, safe aperature (a handfull of pixels around the edge) to allow for
processing is not the same as safe action and title. Although SMPTE has not
stated anything new or firm for HD, all the studio mastering requirements still
dictate that we meet the old standards of 10% and 20%. If masters come in with
titles outside these windows, they will be rejected!
