Australia’s PMP chooses AmberFin

Australia’s Premium Movie Partnership (PMP) has selected AmberFin’s channel partner, Quinto Communications to supply and commission the new AmberFin iCR File Player with its advanced Unified Quality Control (UQC) option for video asset checking at its Showtime Movie Channel content preparation facility at the Fox Studios Entertainment Quarter in Sydney.

Showtime (the trading name of The Premium Movie Partnership) is jointly owned by 20th Century Fox, NBC Universal, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures and Liberty Global International. The company required a solution that could play back and perform quality control analysis on a wide variety of file formats including their in-house editing format Apple Pro Res and formats used for delivery to broadcast video servers, according to AmberFin.

Showtime operates premium movie channels Showtime Premiere, Showtime Premiere Showcase, Showtime Action, Showtime Comedy and Showtime Drama along with HD versions of those channels and online download channels Showtime Family and Showtime Horror.
