Black Levels in Simulcast Video



  • This has been a problem for some time. When encoding the video for your simulcasts, you crush the luminance levels from the full 0-255 range to the 16-235 TV range, which makes shows like Psycho-Pass and Zankyou no Terror quite difficult to watch, as you can see in this screenshot:

    It's not just a case of videophile whining. So much detail is lost in dark scenes that it is difficult to see what is going on.

    This is really easy to fix; any video professional will know exactly what I'm talking about. So, if this information could be passed along to the right people, I would be very grateful. I'm sure many people following your simulcasts would be too.
