Manual Quality Control alone is not adequate anymore and does not scale. As the amount of content continues to increase, broadcasters are finding it difficult to keep up with manual checks. As a result, it is important for broadcasters to look into automated file-based quality control systems to cope with the large amount of content and the abstract nature of digital files.
How can EBU T&I help?
Our Strategic Programme on Quality Control helps Members optimise the use of their automated Quality Control systems. Our EBU.IO/QC tool provides access to over 200 quality Test Items, each with a detailed description of a check that can be performed on audio/visual material. You can also create and export sets of Tests in personal Profiles. This EBU Strategic Programme also aims to provide guidance and share best practices on the practical implementation of QC, e.g. via Technical Review articles and the organisation of workshops and seminars. Active collaboration with the FIMS QA group makes sure the EBU.IO QC Tests can be easily used by FIMS users as well.
