Venera Technologies today announced that AMC Networks, which owns and operates some of the most popular and award-winning brands in entertainment, has expanded its use of Venera's Pulsar automated file-based QC system to bring even greater efficiency to its content QC operations. The Pulsar system gives AMC Networks flexibility in workflow design, allowing the company to perform quick scanning-sorting or in-depth QC at the workflow stages of its choice.
"Venera's Pulsar has the combination of simplicity, performance, and features we require in media file QC software," said Michael Mallozzi, vice president of broadcast engineering and system design for AMC Networks Broadcasting & Technology. "Given our positive experience with our initial Pulsar installation in improving the quality of the content in our file-based workflow, as well as Venera's ongoing support and responsiveness to our requests since our first Pulsar installation in 2013, we chose to expand our QC operations with additional Pulsar systems, which we have found provide us the best value and ROI."
"Pulsar is a strategic fit for the large-scale content QC requirements of major broadcast operations," said Fereidoon Khosravi, senior vice president of business development, Americas at Venera. "We are very pleased to be a technology partner for AMC Networks Broadcasting & Technology and to support the company's use of Pulsar as an integral part of its file-based workflow."

It offers the most comprehensive set of automation capabilities, thereby enabling significant improvements in operational efficiency while ensuring consistent content quality across the workflow.
