Br24 Standards

Br24 standards for image editing

At Br24, uniform standards apply to the image editing process. These standards were defined by Br24 and are based on current industry-specific requirements as well as needs and demands of our customers.

Unless other agreements have been made prior to the start of production, the image editing at Br24 always follows the standards outlined below.

On request, individual solutions and adaptations of these standards to the requirements of our customers are, of course, possible without additional costs.
