EditShare Debut New QScan Automated Q/C Solutions at 2018 NAB Show

Editshare’s intuitive approach and versatile integration enables Automatic Quality Control across production/post production/delivery

EditShare has unveiled its brand new EditShare QScan Automated Quality Control family (AQC) of products, powered by the award winning QUALES QC engine. The new file based video and audio AQC product line simplifies compliance and delivery requirements with robust quality check capabilities that leverage a patent pending QScan Single-Pass Analysis process which can be applied at any point during the workflow.

New EditShare QScan models include: QScan One – A robust full-featured entry level AQC solution that processes one file at time. Ideal for small post facilities requiring the facility to check the integrity of files on an on-going basis but that don't need to check large volumes of media concurrently. QScan Pro – A full featured professional AQC solution that processes four files at a time. Designed for a mid sized post facilities, with different departments such as audio, grading, VFX and editing. Each department can set up parameters to test their files, with up to 4 files being tested simultaneously. QScan Max – Fully scalable multi node enterprise AQC solution with each node allowing for processing four concurrent files at a time. Ideal for VOD, OTT and Telco companies, the Max revision has limitless scalability allowing a large operator to test hundreds of files concurrently.

All EditShare QScan models are certified by DPP and AMWA, and support DPP compliance, including PSE and, new at NAB, IMF testing. 

Users can create a library of audio specific test templates that can be combined with a common set of video tests templates or, for example, different audio test templates to cover the different number of audio tracks for different deliverables. One of the biggest problems that users have when adopting AQC solutions is setting up templates. QScan Single Pass Analysis allows users to create a template, test the file and then adjust the threshold for any parameter and see the results of those changes immediately. No need to retest the content every time you adjust the parameter, which can be time consuming and frustrating. This approach makes the adoption of AQC much easier and helps to eliminate false positives, said company officials.
