Smart cloud based QC makes MXF a great delivery format and using a Domain Specific Language hides the complexity from users. In the latest “Bruce’s Short”, Bruce Devlin looks at metadata, QC, and air-ready masters.
Now that broadcast delivery has migrated from videotape to files for the air-ready master, there remains teh issue of how to handle the requiremetns for different delivery platforms from SD and HD to OTT.
Today's files are rich in metadata so that the right file can be put on the right platform at the right time.
The MXF file is being used in this context, but how do you know that you have the right file.
This is where QC comes in. The metadata can be contructed as a domain specific language, hiding the complexity from the casual user or operator. Doing with MXF leverages a widely-deployed international standard.
