All programs must be able to play back in GPAT's videotape and DVD players and be free of abnormalities that make the picture jump, skew, digitize, disappear, or in some other way not play properly.

All programs must be preceded by 10 seconds of black video and should contain 10 seconds of black video at the conclusion of the program.
