EditShare Announces QScan Support For IMF Packages

News Image
EditShare has announced that its QScan Automated Quality Control family (AQC) of products is now compliant with IMF (Interoperable Master Format) packages.

All QScan models also carry compliance certification from the DPP and AMWA, which includes support for PSE testing.

"The new QScan IMF release is yet another milestone on EditShare's journey to provide users with next-generation solutions that meet the needs of today's global production supply chain," said Howard Twine, director of software strategy, EditShare. "Although IMF is not a new concept, its broader industry adoption is on the horizon. Our new QScan IMF capabilities will play a key role in ensuring users that compliance delivery can be met with the utmost confidence and simplicity, demystifying complex emerging high-dynamic range technology and workflows."

IMF smooths the path for modern post-production workflows requiring multiple file formats for the master, different versions and edits, different resolutions and frame rates, aspect ratios, languages, and ultimately distribution to many destinations. QScan aids in the IMF QC workflow by detecting the existence of the corresponding XML files (CPL, PKL, OPL, AssetMap, Volume Index), reading the contents and providing information about the structure of the entire IMF package (IMPs).

Mr Twine continued: "It is particularly interesting the way QScan shows the information of these XML files. QScan provides a timeline view of the CPL where all essence files are described, thus helping the user better understand the structure of the whole IMP. This approach educates while simplifying the entire process."

QScan will also detect when any errors are present in the XML files and perform all audio and video checks on the essence files.

"An IMF bundle is complex and there are many parts to it that can go wrong, causing problems further up the production or delivery process," Mr Twine added. "QScan provides EditShare customers with the ability to rapidly and automatically spot structural errors within this bundle. In most cases, these types of errors cannot be spotted easily by a human operator and cause real problems for the production."
