    We do 30 seconds of bars and tone, then 15 seconds of the slate and countdown, on my countdowns, the slate and countdown are together on one screen, to give a little longer time to read the slate info… that goes to the 2-pop, the last second and a half before program is black. Then again, half the time now we get requests to skip bars and slate and countdown, now that folks take the videos as files instead of on tape.
