Editshare Reveals New QScan Automated Quality Control Product Range

News Image
Editshare has revealed the new QScan Automated Quality Control (AQC) line of products.

The products are powered by the award winning QUALES QC engine. The line also simplifies compliance and delivery requirements with robust quality check capabilities that leverage a patent pending QScan Single-Pass Analysis process, which can be applied at any point during the workflow.

New EditShare QScan models include:

QScan One – A robust full-featured entry level AQC solution that processes one file at time. Ideal for small post facilities requiring the facility to check the integrity of files on an on-going basis, but that don't need to check large volumes of media concurrently.

QScan Pro – A full featured professional AQC solution that processes four files at a time. Designed for mid sized post facilities, with different departments such as audio, grading, VFX and editing. Each department can set up parameters to test their files, with up to four files being tested simultaneously.

QScan Max – Fully scalable multi node enterprise AQC solution with each node allowing for processing four concurrent files at a time. Ideal for VOD, OTT and Telco companies, the Max revision has limitless scalability allowing a large operator to test hundreds of files concurrently.

Certified by DPP and AMWA, all EditShare QScan models support DPP compliance, including PSE and, new at NAB, IMF testing. "Regardless of the size of your facility, if you are delivering content to OTT providers or broadcasters today, having a robust AQC workflow like EditShare QScan is table stakes for doing business," commented Howard Twine, Director of Software Strategy, EditShare. "While there are many options out there, the beauty of QScan is that it can be utilized at any point in the workflow. For example, in post production, as an editor or post supervisor, you can easily confirm your files are clean before you even start your project. And with the scalable, tiered package options, we are offering everyone from small boutique post facilities to enterprise operations a tailored package and pricing model that meets their exacting AQC requirements and budget. For workflow versatility and cost, QScan is a game changer."

Maximum Efficiency: Combined Test Templates and Single Pass Analysis
QScan allows users to combine different test templates and with QScan Single Pass Analysis, maximize efficiency for qualifying essence and container elements across a wide range of project types.

"Users can create a library of audio specific test templates that can be combined with a common set of video tests templates or, for example, different audio test templates to cover the different number of audio tracks for different deliverables. This in itself is very effective in terms of efficiency." Mr Twine added.

"Combined with the QScan Single Pass Analysis, AQC is made more organically accessible across the organizations," he explained. "One of the biggest problems that users have when adopting AQC solutions is setting up templates. QScan Single Pass Analysis allows users to create a template, test the file and then adjust the threshold for any parameter and see the results of those changes immediately. No need to retest the content every time you adjust the parameter, which can be time consuming and frustrating. This approach makes the adoption of AQC much easier and helps to eliminate false positives.”

EditShare QScan will also perform partial analysis, allowing users to skip or set the test templates to skip over the bars, clock or black at the start of a clip.

Visual Timeline and Reporting Designed for Creatives
The intuitive QScan UI is visually designed for the creative. Simple-to-use features and easy-to-read report results expand AQC use across the operation. "We have made it easy to navigate the QScan timeline," stated Mr Twine. "Users can go frame by frame and understand the values of the selected parameters and the tested results. This makes it particularly easy to spot problems with the content."

EditShare End-to-End AQC Workflow
All EditShare QScan solutions are natively connected to the EditShare Flow MAM solution.
While traditional AQC simply checks files on the output, QScan integrated with Flow validates files throughout the production - from ingest to editorial, VFX and grading, through to delivery. Errors detected by QScan are added to the content timeline as metadata, visually flagging issues to users. This fully integrated approach allows facilities to check files before expending valuable creative time on potentially unsupported media files.

Integration with Third Party Solutions
In addition to Flow integration, EditShare QScan also offers flexible workflow configurations. Purchase as a stand alone system or leverage the QScan RESTful API for seamless integration with third party products including industry standard MAM and ingest solutions.

See QScan at NAB 2018
QScan will make its debut at NAB 2018 (booth SL8620). Attendees to the 2018 NAB Show can book a private demonstration with an EditShare expert to discuss AQC workflow needs and how EditShare QScan solutions can help at: www.editshare.com/book-demo-nab-2018
