Broadcasters moving to file-based production facilities have to consider how to use automated QC systems. Manual quality control is simply not adequate anymore and it does not scale.
QC is key!
The EBU recognised QC as a key topic for the media industry in 2010. In 2011 it started an EBU Strategic Programme on Quality Control, with the aim to collect requirements, experiences and to create recommendations for broadcasters implementing file-based QC in their facilities. If you are interested in this topic, you should join the EBU Strategic Programme on QC to make sure you are kept up-to-date. The EBU Strategic Programme (SP) on QC is chaired by BBC's Andy Quested, Reinhard Knör (IRT) and Roman Meszmer (ORF).
- QC test sequences are available for active group participants .
