mxfSPEEDRAIL Centralized Ingest and Vidcheck Automated QC Together to Optimize File-Based Video Quality
Digital technology is experiencing great changes, but broadcasters cannot lose sight of their ultimate goal: provide the highest quality contents to the viewer. Quality Control processes are becoming increasingly critical for the broadcast industry due to the quantity of different formats sources and destinations, and the continuous evolution of new technologies and systems.
The unique mxfSPEEDRAIL technology plays an important role by bridging the gap across a wide range of platforms, channels and formats, with cross-vendor compatible systems. Now, by adding Vidcheck QC capabilities to work with its full range of automated solutions, mxfSPEEDRAIL will ensure that different formats and quality versions will exactly match the versions required by the end user.
Both systems will perfectly work together to achieve a fully unified environment with all the major production processes covered, from ingest into delivery, while ensuring the confidence on the correctness and quality of the contents.
For the complex and multi-format environments supported by mxfSPEEDRAIL it is important to reduce errors and costs when moving media between servers and editors. Vidcheck software automatically performs quality control on media files and can also automatically correct common video and audio errors including loudness. The software has a straightforward operating interface, representing the perfect fit for mxfSPEEDRAIL technology.
“Vidcheck technology will empower mxfSPEEDRAIL ingest capabilities”, says Rui Pereira, COO of MOG Technologies. “By bringing both technologies together we can deliver a solid solution that can effectively cover all the production processes, eliminating errors and providing the highest quality contents.”
“Vidcheck is delighted to add MOG mxfSPEEDRAIL to the growing number of products that integrate Vidcheck automated QC technology”, says Thomas Dove, CEO of Vidcheck. “The combination of best of breed performance and functionality allied to the flexibility and capability of the Vidcheck API has made Vidcheck the leading QC automation partner.”
mxfSPEEDRAIL turns operator playback tasks into simple and solid tasks by enabling frame accurate HD-SDI playback from all professional formats and codecs through a single and intuitive interface. Adding Vidcheck, the operator will remove the need to manually check the content to look for image issues as the system will automatically detect errors, ensuring that the content is checked in its entirety.
Based on open industry standards and offering state-of-the-art technology, MOG has been establishing itself in the market as the worldwide supplier for both Centralized Ingest Solutions and MXF Development Tools. For over a decade, MOG has been helping worldwide broadcasters and technology providers to increase the overall performance of its workflows while migrating for file-based environments, ensuring high interoperability between systems and formats.
MOG aims to exceed media challenges and to break the workflow boundaries by delivering fully interoperable solutions to the broadcast industry.
Vidcheck was founded in late-2009 to provide unique and advanced software applications to automatically check and correct video and audio in file-based digital video, focusing on the requirements of the broadcast industry, at a cost-effective price. The aim is to remove the labor intensive task of checking and manually correcting media files received by broadcasters by providing cost-effective software suitable for use with commercials, short-form programs and long form content.
