The following are the procedures for preparing, submitting, and activating both your lower right "Branding" logo and your lower-center "Legal ID" logo. Preparing the logos in this way will insure their proper appearance over the FOX Broadcast Network programming. NOTE: FOX programming will be formatted for 'letterbox' presentation on legacy 4x3 displays, using the AFD code 1010. The on-screen position of the logos will not change. PREPARATION for "BRANDING" LOGO File Type: Portable Network Graphic (.png) file with Alpha Channel Color bit depth: 24bit RGB w/ 8 bit Alpha (key) channel. Max white level: 80% Size: Maximum Size of 96 horizontal pixels by 80 vertical pixels Size Notes: The above size is the maximum size of the canvas (the logo). FOX recommends keeping a „title‟ safe area of 80x50, located in the upper left corner of the graphic. PREPARATION for "LEGAL ID" LOGO File Type: Portable Network Graphic (.png) file with Alpha Channel Color bit depth: 24bit RGB w/ 8bit Alpha (key) channel. Max white level: 80% Size: Maximum Size of 320 horizontal pixels by 80 vertical pixels. Size Notes: 320 x 80 is the maximum size of the canvas (the logo). FOX recommends keeping a „title‟ safe area of 320 x50, located at the top of the graphic. LOGO NAMING CONVENTION: Logos should be saved and submitted using the following naming conventions: EXAMPLES: Branding Logo: {station call letters}_branding.png ex: KTTV_branding.png Legal ID Logo: {station call letters}_legalid.png ex: WNYW_legalid.png

Station Logo Loading
V3 allows stations to load their own logos without requiring action from the FOX
TOC.
Logos shall be loaded onto the ROSA PC from a data CD or DVD (the USB
port of the ROSA PC is disabled). Although the ROSA PC has its own anti‐virus
software, stations should always virus scan their PCs before burning a logo file to
CD/DVD.

The format for static and animated logos are as follows:

Static Logos
File Format: PNG (see http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/ for more info)
R,G,B & Alpha Values: up to 8 bits each
Maximum Size: 320 pixels width, 180 pixels height
(Note: The "Branding" logo shall have a maximum size of 96 horizontal pixels by 80
vertical pixels. The "Legal ID" logo shall have a maximum size of 320 horizontal
pixels by 80 vertical pixels. For both of these logos, FOX recommends keeping
important information in the upper 50 lines of the graphic, which is in the "title" safe
area.)

Animated Logos
File Format: MNG (see http://www.libpng.org/pub/mng/ for more info)
Maximum Number of Frames: 250
R,G,B & Alpha Values: up to 8 bits each
Maximum Size: 320 pixels width, 180 pixels height
Frame Rate: The frame rate of the MNG file will be respected if possible. If the frame
rate of the MNG file is not a whole fraction of the video frame rate (59.94fps), it is
rounded to specific fractions of the video frame rate.
PNG and MNG files contain internal "alpha channel" data, thus there is no need for a
separate key/fill image files.
