Error Code:

Luminance Peaks 


"Luminance Peaks" refers to the measured luminance of certain or all portions of the frame that is limited to a sub-optimal peak value.


Luminance Peaks impact the Technical and Content Quality of the asset. Customer experience will be adversely affected if on-screen elements peak so brightly that their monitor is unable to render their detail. Large blobs or white or color may appear on portions of screen where Luminance Peaks are too high. Possibly, though rarely, creative intent. Any asset derived from this video will contain Luminance Peaks.

Severity Structure:


Apparently intended and does not affect viewing experience. Occurs in the sun or a logical on screen element that would be bright.


Levels are way over or under standard measurement and picture quality has been greatly degraded. Sections of screen have lost detail due to severe brightness.

How to Prevent:                          

Monitor luminance levels using scopes to ensure peaks stay between 7.5 and 100 IRE.


Luminance peaks must be adjusted in order to bring the picture back into a high-quality visual state.
