Quick Reference

A standard set of criteria by which television engineers judge whether a programme is technically fit or unfit to be broadcast. These include, on tape-based formats, the picture and audio quality, the existence and the correct type of timecode, the presence of a line-up signal (bars and tone) and the amount of black and silence between it and the programme: in the UK, many of these criteria are set by the European Broadcast Union (EBU).
