Flame Distribution Scales Operations With EditShare

News Image
EditShare's QUALES QC solution has been selected by Flame Distribution, a subsidiary of Flame Media, as part of its distribution workflow.

With a significant workload of incoming content to version and pass through Quality Control for international sales and distribution, Flame Distribution needed to automate large parts of its existing manual QC procedures. As a result, the company selected QUALES for its automated QC procedure.

"Not all content comes to us pretty and ready for sale by any means," said Jason Lee, Technical Manager at Flame Distribution. "Because we represent the buyer, we have a series of protocols in place to make sure that the quality of content is good before we pass it for worldwide sale. We want to make sure that we're providing a premium service and that means having the best QC procedure in place."

When evaluating the QC product market sector, Flame Distribution had a number of key points that they needed verified. Their selection criteria included value for money, simultaneous multi-user support and integration with its existing workflow. It also included return on investment, specifically, the ability to save time and resources, especially on existing labor-intensive workflows.

"Some solutions required us to pay for a standardized package but if you needed features like using QuickTime, or to QC certain audio elements, you had to pay extra," Lee continued. "If you wanted a full license for the QC software, you ended up with a fairly large price tag. With other solutions we found the user interface difficult to get to grips with. And then there were some vendors pricing their solution to operate for a certain number of hours per day. That model may work for smaller post facilities, but we didn't want to be stuck in a situation where we're paying extra for a full license to run 24 hours a day.

"The QUALES solution, however, fit the bill. With QUALES, we're not having to pay extra for additional features. That's why I was initially attracted to the product. There's no restriction on license either. It's one price for the entire system. For us, that just offers tremendous flexibility because we can scale at will."

QUALES is a fully featured video and audio QC system that is used to check the integrity of media files.
