Cloud Quality Control (QC)
Aurora is the automated, scalable file-based QC system that saves media providers time and money by driving efficiency, quality, and cost savings in their workflows. Aurora can be integrated with external workflow management tools in both on-premises and cloud deployments to continuously check, unattended, thousands of hours of content.
Poor quality sound is fatiguing and creates the risk of listeners tuning out. Like a dirty windshield, compromised audio quality obscures the sonic landscape. Details get lost, speech can be more difficult to comprehend, and content can suffer as a result. Omnia processing makes audio more listenable, less fatiguing, and more consistent. If you care about your Podcast content getting through to the listener, you need to care about sound quality.
As more audio is produced remotely and consumed on-demand, the challenge of consistent audio levels is becoming even greater. In fact, it is the number one complaint of podcast listeners!
OmniaTools™ allows you to automatically manage loudness levels on all content and create your signature sound on podcasts, helping you stand out and keep your audience engaged.
This easy-to-use, enterprise-class Windows Service makes it simple to create consistent loudness for all your audio files while improving the quality of the audio.
X-Pert Quality Check
X-Pert Quality Check provides control analysis and assessment of media quality.
Performing tests is simple
The application interface includes several subchapters. Thus, you may easily find what you need. Moreover, the customer needs are satisfied because of the quick and intuitive control provided.
Test Presets for quality tests
Our software includes multiple quality tests:
- Loudness Measurements – ITU-R BS.1770-3, ATSC A/85, EBU R128.
- Color Frames Detection – particularly used to configure up to three colors for this test.
- Frozen Frame Detection – executes tests of the video stream in the content. Besides, you can get instant reports about the duration of the frozen frames.
- Correct duration – namely, compares file duration with the playout duration.
Auto mode quality check
X-Pert Quality Check allows an automatic scan of many source directories. Furthermore, any of the predefined test presets can be related to any settled folder or subfolder.
The user-friendly interface includes an indicator of progress. In short, this is the result of the performed quality tests. Therefore, you will have files, which can be safely produced in X-Pert Playout.
