ATG Broadcast has signed a channel partnership agreement with Vidcheck, provider of software for automated quality control and correction of video and audio in file-based media.
"This continues our strategy of offering advanced products to the broadcast and post production market," commented ATG broadcast product sales manager Chris Elson. "Vidcheck delivers very powerful media file analysis solutions which closely complement AmberFin's iCR products as the best solution to meet the requirements of the Digital Production Partnership's file-based programme delivery standard. We are also promoting the products combined or separately in the Middle East."
Vidcheck produces a software-only automated QC package which measures the parameters and settings when preparing and exchanging file-based content. It automatically processes multiple files simultaneously, and its 'check-and-correct' functionality can analyse video and audio file parameters and automatically correct parameters. Vidcheck software incorporates audio loudness checking based on ITU-R 1770 (to ATSC and EBU recommendations) and can automatically correct audio peak levels and loudness levels. It also includes testing for photo-sensitive epilepsy in accordance with the Ofcom specification, a mandatory check in the UK and Japan.
ATG Broadcast offers services including workflow design, project planning, equipment installation, software configuration, commissioning, documentation, onsite training plus ongoing support and maintenance. The company is part of the Dan Technologies Systems Integration Division.
