International communications and information technology company Harris Corporation is set to introduce its next-generation family of file-based analysis solutions at upcoming shows in South Asia, the Middle East and North America. The solution is said to bring top drawer quality control without compromise to broadcasters, content producers, cable networks, post houses and other digital media operations.
“The increasing emphasis on file-based workflows in today’s demanding broadcast, production and media operations creates a need for straightforward quality control processes,” said Harris Morris, President, Harris Broadcast Communications. “These new tools provide fast, effective and actionable results without false positives - allowing our customers to more effectively share, distribute and monetise media assets across many workflows and delivery platforms.”
The Harris QuiC software family is designed to minimise the workload for video server operators in TV stations, network facilities and new media operations. Customers using QuiC software tools to analyse files ingested into video servers can achieve results faster through automated processes.
Featuring what is said to be best-in-class quality control technology from content analysis specialist Digimetrics, the QuiC software family includes three easy-to-use and cost-effective tools: QuiC Pro for flexibility, with scalability to enterprise-level operations, QuiC Express for file analysis in less complex workflows and QuiC View for visual presentation of digital content with ties to HTML reports.
Harris claims that both QuiC Pro and QuiC Express integrate quickly into any operation or facility, with ready-to-go test templates and an intuitive web-based user interface. A web-service Application Programming Interface (API) has been designed to enable communication with digital asset management systems and other workflow components. As a result Harris customers can easily integrate QuiC software products into workflow solutions featuring Harris NEXIO AMP servers and Invenio digital asset management software.
QuiC Pro offers the most flexible QC feature set for the creative process and is said to be ideal for use after content editing, during automated ingest, and for on-the-fly video transcoding and archival transfers. QuiC View is a professional-grade viewer that offers added value for content owners seeking a fast and efficient way to closely inspect file-based assets. All QuiC software products support multiple media formats, a wide range of video and audio codecs, and many ancillary and metadata formats.
