AmberFin is rolling out the world’s first Unified Quality Control solution for content ingest and transcoding operations at IBC in Amsterdam next month.
Called iCR Unified QC, this unique approach to quality control combines multiple tools for baseband checks during tape ingest, file-based QC after ingest, and overall operator-controlled QC, including annotation and mark-up. The development of UQC represents one of the most significant developments to AmberFin’s iCR file-based content ingest and transcoding system in recent years.
The addition of UQC to AmberFin’s 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. New levels of trust and confidence in the file/media quality are introduced, freeing up staff to focus on other revenue-generating tasks. AmberFin’s intention is that UQC will become regarded as an industry benchmark in media quality control.
