AmberFin launches unified Quality Control solution

File-based media ingest and transcoding solutions provider AmberFin has launched a unified Quality Control (UQC) solution for content ingest and transcoding operations.

Called iCR Unified QC, the solution combines multiple tools for baseband checks during tape ingest, file-based QC after ingest, and overall operator-controlled QC, including annotation and mark-up. AmberFin said the development of UQC represents one of the most significant developments to its iCR file-based content ingest and transcoding system in recent years. According to the company, the addition of UQC to its iCR means that users have the potential to create a high quality file-based HD/SD master, provide unique file conversion to multiple formats and implement appropriate levels of automated and manual quality control, all within a single unified software environment.

“The explosion in file-based workflows means traditional manual methods of quality control are no longer effective,” said Bruce Devlin, chief technology officer at AmberFin. “That’s why we have developed the world’s first unified QC approach, combining automatic and operator controlled tools that deliver the most advanced QC workflow available today. UQC checks not only files, but also the processes that created them.”

The new UQC approach features the integration of Snell’s Hyperion and Digimetric’s Aurora so that all aspects of QC are integrated within a single unified timeline. QC processes can be implemented at any point in the lifecycle of an asset, using the most appropriate technique.

AmberFin will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 7.J15
