TV Safe White?
TV Safe White?
by Anthony Fennell on Mar 9, 2009 at 7:42:07 pm

I shoot events often with white place cards in front of a panel. The cards are framed out most of the time but when they get in the shot they are blown out. To make matters worse the place cards are set in shinny plexi-glass
I remember the term TV safe white from my days at NBC years ago.
Anyone remember the % white ? Any suggestions? What paper to order to help this problem?
Its strange that week after week of events this has never been addressed with the client but I dont wanna say anything till I have a good solution.
Unfortunately gripping the problem is not possible, and the cards have to stay
Thanks for the help
