Encoding.com Launches First Cloud-Based Video QC Service

The new service will enable content providers to offload their video QC infrastructure to the cloud-based API service from Encoding.com. Content providers and distributors can now automate their video QC job management and reporting pipelines through this highly scalable and efficient cloud service.

The Encoding.com cloud QC solution enables more than 50 individual QC validations at the time of transcoding and packaging, or the checks can be applied to assets that have already been processed.

All of the QC checks requested will be performed on the same compute node as transcoding and packaging to save time, friction and money when compared to manual transfers of media to a separate QC system. Some of the services include:


● General Validations including output size, duration, bitrate,captions and file size
● Video Validations including frame rates, codecs, aspect ratio, level
● Audio Validations including bitrate, codec, channels, channel layout
● Manifest Validations including version numbers, declarations, encryption, discontinuity tags
● API web service for complete integration into CMS/MAM/DAM platforms for production and broadcast workflows

The quality control function has lagged behind other media processing functions and has remained an expensive, manually operated on premise step within an otherwise automated media processing workflow. Automating the QC function by moving it to the cloud and pairing tightly with transcoding and packaging workflows is the obvious future and will save our customers time and money and improve the overall quality of video reaching end viewers.
