EditShare's QUALES QC Honoured With TV Technology Innovation Award

News Image
EditShare has said that they are "proud to close out 2017" with a prestigious TV Technology Product Innovation Award for its automated QC and file verification system QUALES.

The TV Technology Product Innovation Awards recognize outstanding technological innovations that best serve working professionals in the TV/pro video and radio/online audio industries. The winners were selected by a panel of professionals working in media and entertainment sectors.

James Richings, Managing Director, EditShare EMEA, said: "QUALES is revolutionizing the way industry professionals approach QC work. Traditionally, QC platforms require extensive technical training, meaning that only select individuals are able to operate the platforms. The intuitive QUALES user interface is designed for the everyday creative professional with an emphasis on ease of use, giving a visual representation of the quality-checked file. Combined with the automated QC accuracy QUALES is known for plus the new, ground-breaking integration with our Flow media asset management platform, the QUALES solution as a whole has been a huge success with EditShare customers, saving them time, budget and resources."

One example of QUALES revolutionizing QC workflows is the case of Australian-based content versioning and preparation house Flame Media. Like most creative distribution agencies, Flame works on multiple projects from multiple producers concurrently with bursts in activity that could double QC workloads on a moment's notice. They selected QUALES to automate their QC process because of its tremendous flexibility and ability to scale with demand.

Jason Lee, Technical Manager at Flame, added: "QUALES has proved especially helpful with content that has had a lot of freeze frames and syntax errors. Too many files have come to us that we thought we could play, where we've had problems in which QUALES has reported back and told us the file is corrupt. That's been very handy for us to catch drop frames and dead pixels, which are extremely hard to detect in a manual QC.

"You could be watching content at rates of 24 or 29 frames a second. There is no way you're going to visibly see issues like dead pixels. QUALES scans the content at a frame level and can identify errors."
