SAN FRANCISCO, CA- October 18, 2017-  Encoding.com, the most trusted cloud-based video processing service for the media and entertainment market, has introduced the first Video QC as a Service in the cloud. The new service will enable content providers to offload their video quality control infrastructure, and, alternately, utilize the cloud based API service from Encoding.com. Content providers and distributors can now automate their video QC job management and reporting pipelines through Encoding.com’s highly scalable and efficient cloud service. Users have the option to run over 50 individual QC validations at the time of transcoding and packaging or use the Encoding.com Video QC service on assets that have already been processed.

All of the QC checks requested will be performed on the same compute node as transcoding and packaging to save time, friction and money when compared to manual transfers of media to a separate QC system. Some of the services include:

  • General Validations including output size, duration, bitrate,captions and file size
  • Video Validations including frame rates, codecs, aspect ratio, level
  • Audio Validations including bitrate, codec, channels, channel layout
  • Manifest Validations including version numbers, declarations, encryption, discontinuity tags
  • API web service for complete integration into CMS/MAM/DAM platforms for production and broadcast workflows

Encoding.com will continue to add new validations and features to the QC service based on user feedback and requirements.

“The Quality Control function has lagged behind other media processing functions and has remained an expensive, manually operated on premise step within an otherwise automated media processing workflow.  Automating the QC function by moving it to the cloud and pairing tightly with transcoding and packaging workflows is the obvious future and will save our customers time and money and improve the overall quality of video reaching end viewers.“ says Greggory Heil, CEO at Encoding.com.
