Automated QC Vidchecker and Vidfi xer, the automated fi le-based media quality control (QC) and correction products made by Vidcheck, have been awarded AMWA AS-11 Digital Production Partnership (DPP) Certifi cation. The kitemark confi rms that a product has met the criteria of the specifi cation and grants rights to manufacturers to make certain claims regarding the compliance of their products. AS-11 DPP is a subset of the AMWA Application Specifi cation that was written for UK broadcasters for the delivery of fi nished programmes as digital fi les rather than tapes. Vidcheck chief executive Thomas Dove said: “This is a welcome acknowledgement of all the hard work that has made the products so successful already. It’s also an additional confi dence booster for those who need to be sure they deliver quality-compliant content to an expanding range of platforms. Our products are the fi rst and so far the only ones to be certifi ed as a DPP-compliant analyser, reader and writer.” Storage Shared storage Volic on will debut a new Archiver option for its Observer Media Intelligence Platform at NAB (booth SU7916). Addressing broadcasters’ need for convenient, cost- effective long-term storage of aired content, the Archiver option makes high-quality versions of programming, promos and advertisements available for a variety of purposes from ad verifi cation to re-purposing. “A growing amount of unique content, news and sports highlights, in particular, is being exchanged amongst owners and provided to consumers via platforms such as OTT services and the Web,” said Gary Learner, chief technology offi cer at Volicon. “To leverage their own programming successfully within this marketplace, broadcasters need a cost-effective solution that makes it easy to capture and store aired content to highly accessible online storage. As expanding monetization opportunities make content increasingly valuable, reliable long-term storage of aired content also is a must for broadcasters.” The Archiver option gives multiple simultaneous users random access to an indexed store of full-resolution, high-bit-rate (long-GOP H.264, 9-15 Mbps) content, as well as low-resolution proxies. Users can search for content by caption or by date and time. EditShare’s NAB 2015 showcase (booth SL10510) will include XStream EFS, the company’s new distributed, redundant scale-out storage system, and the latest release of the its media asset management platform, EditShare Flow 3.2.

It includes smart collaboration features, such as project sharing, combined with improved performance, multiple levels of redundancy and scalability. “XStream EFS is a game-changing product release for EditShare that brings Enterprise class storage to even modest-sized facilities,” said Andy Liebman, founder and chief executive of EditShare. “It incorporates the clever media management tools EditShare is known for with an architecture developed from the ground up for large media workgroups and very large data volumes.
