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.
