Broadcast Safe Davinci Resolve

Broadcast Safe Davinci Resolve is a build in function within the program allowing you to control saturation and exposure for broadcast. Generally speaking, the function itself is very useful as a general guide that works for most applications.

The above video explains how to use the function and visually monitor what is really going on the screen. Broadcast Safe should not be used as the only guidance and you always should refer to your build in scopes or third party software or hardware scopes for precise monitoring. However, as mentioned above, for most TV stations and applications it’s good enough and you probably won’t have any trouble. Just keep in mind general common sense when grading for broadcast output.
