Broadcast test card font

modernactivity's picture

Hello

This is a fairly common font used in SMPTE colour bar test cards (http://www.apsattv.com/history/january2001.html) and the like - just wondering if anyone had a clue where I can find this? Been trailing through the usual flash / pixel font sources without any joy...

thanks for your help!

You could quickly whip up exactly what you need using FontStruct.

Thanks for the help people - I did try fonstruct, and you are right - really fast way to knock up this kind of modular font... my 1/2 hour attempt below resulted in a caps only face, perfectly usable (although it doesnt like being installed in suitcase)
This face needs to be stretched horizontally a little - as it is broadcast the pixels are not (I think) actuallly square - they have a different aspect ratio...

Well done! You can use the "Advanced" palette in FontStruct to increase the vertical scale of the bricks overall.
