Video Artifact


Video Artifact refers to an extraneous element in the captured image that is typically generated in an analog video signal. Distracting artifacts on the screen draw a viewer's attention away from the area of focus and can negatively impact the customer experience. Any derivatives of the asset will also have the video artifact. 

Severity Structure:



Needs Review

The edge of the image has a negative effect or shading; there is visible VITC; It's possible the artifact maybe from a standards conversion or upscale.

Needs Fix



Review and confirm if this is creative intent; otherwise, remove the video artifact. It's typically done by the matte or minor scale to the outside frame edges.
