AMSTERDAM� Vidcheck, a supplier of software for automated QC and correction of video and audio media files, says it will debut new features for the company's product suite at IBC 2014.
�Although broadcasters are increasingly recognizing that automating quality control is a solution to easing the headache of meeting quality standards, equally important is what happens when problems are found,� said Vidcheck CEO Thomas Dove. �If the auto QC system doesn't also include auto correction, the files may have to go back several times for manual re-editing and re-rendering, which can be a time-consuming and costly process. And manually repairing the problems may introduce other errors.�
Vidcheck will introduce the latest version of its intelligent auto correction technology, which includes patent-pending processes that not only automate the QC process, and also add automated correction so that problems are identified and repaired in a single pass. The automatic QC and intelligent correction capabilities also mean that Vidchecker''s ROI can be measured in weeks.
�Vidchecker''s robust API means that its core technology is already directly integrated with many third-party systems that are used for transcoding, file delivery and workflow management,� said Dove.
In addition to Vidchecker, the range includes the �Vidchecker-post for post house and production facilities; �Vidfixer, which provides more extensive error correction functions; �Vidchecker Grid, which is suitable for large enterprises; and �Vidchecker Cloud for large organizations that want a dynamically scalable, pay-per-use solution.
These products use current software technology to automate simultaneous QC and error-correction processing by taking advantage of self-correcting heuristic algorithms that modify original content by the minimum amount needed to ensure compliance.
