Quality Control

 


        This Strategic Programme is about Quality Control (QC). Broadcasters moving to fileā€based production facilities have to consider how to use automated QC systems. Manual QC alone is not adequate anymore and it does not scale.

 

 

Four Use Cases


The EBU Strategic Programme on Quality Control (QC) has identified four main use cases:
 

1. Ingest
2. Legacy archive transfer to files
3. Final programme delivery
4. Programme exchange

 

Deliverables


The Programme is specifying detailed requirements for the above use cases (the EBU 'QC Criteria') and guidance on their implementation in broadcasters' workflows.

 

- See this 'periodic table' for an overview of all EBU QC Criteria.
- Download EBU Tech 3363 for details on all QC Criteria currently defined.

- QC test sequences are available for active group participants .
