US Debut of Vidcheck OnDemand Automated QC at NAB

Vidcheck will use NAB 2016 as the US launch venue for a fully scalable version of its Vidchecker automated quality control system.

Vidcheck will debut Vidcheck OnDemand, designed for use by television content producers, content owners and broadcasters. Its aimed at high-volume users and will be available within an efficient operational-expenditure framework. Vidcheck OnDemand’s variable scale is controlled by the user.

Vidchecker OnDemand licences can be deployed in burst mode, across a public cloud (such as Amazon Web Services or Azure) or across virtual machines forming an on-site private cloud. The burst mode concept allows customers to employ elastic computing to accommodate practically any scale of workflow.

Vidchecker is designed for checking file-based video, audio and related metadata before and after distribution. It is also used by broadcasters for checking files received from post-production and content distributors to ensure that file, video and audio parameters and levels are correct and ready for general transmission.

Vidchecker tests and corrects multiple files simultaneously, providing a highly efficient alternative to verifying conformance by eye and hand. It can also automatically and intelligently correct video and audio levels. Sub-SD, SD, HD, UHD, 4K, 8K and mixed workflows are supported. The Vidchecker GUI is accessed through a web browser either on the local machine or remotely over a network.

Vidcheck software is used by many of the world's leading broadcasters, content distributors, archive organisations and post-production companies. It provides a comprehensive check of the overall file, video and audio parameters and can perform intelligent correction of most common errors that can occur in the signal stream.

The software can be upgraded to add extra features or to achieve higher throughput.
