​TMD Adds Automatic Quality Check With Quales

Editshare’s quality control tool, Quales, is now supported by TMD’s Mediaflex-UMS media asset management platform.

“Through this new partnership, both company’s existing and new clients will benefit from the addition of Quales support to the range of devices available on the Mediaflex-UMS platform, providing more choice,” said Paul Wilkins, director of solutions and marketing at TMD. “It strengthens and builds on our existing relationship that saw Editshare’s native EFS file system support integrated into the Mediaflex-UMS platform last year, to keep us on the leading edge technologically.”

The integration allows TMD Mediaflex Orchestrator to access the Quales AQC API check file verification protocols. Once the files are processed, the file is then checked back into Mediaflex with the corresponding PDF, greenlighting or rejecting the content based on the predefined delivery specification.

“The keys to automating processes like Quality Control are the interface and user feedback. Offering this via a robust yet simple API is only half the job, building partnerships with market leaders like TMD is essential to the success of the platform,” states Howard Twine, director of software strategy, EditShare. “Quales will enable TMD customers to QC an unlimited volume of concurrent files at any single time, eliminating downtime they may encounter by having to test one file at a time or doing manual QC.”
