Quality Control

Helps to optimise the use of automated quality control systems.

Automated file-based quality control systems help to cope with the large amount of content and the abstract nature of digital files. The QC group currently is especially focussing on the QCing of IMF content.

Currently the following deliverables are planned for QC (besides normal maintenance). Green indicates the deliverable has already been delivered. Note that deliverables are dependent on enough participation in the work and that the planning is subject to change.

The topic of Quality Control is part of the EBU's Production Strategic Programme.


  • Our QC group helps optimise the use of automated Quality Control systems by maintaining a database of QC Tests, their key parameters, examples and related test material.
  • The EBU.IO/QC tool provides access to hundreds of QC Test Items, each with a detailed description of a test that can be performed on audio/visual material.
  • A public API is available for automated access to the EBU.IO/QC collection. Users can also create sets of QC Items in Templates using the web GUI.
