Encoding.com has introduced Video QC as a Service in the cloud. The service is intended to enable content providers to offload their video quality control infrastructure and automate their video QC job management and reporting pipelines through Encoding.com's service. Users have the option to run more than 50 individual QC validations at the time of transcoding and packaging or use the Encoding.com Video QC service on assets that have already been processed.

All of the QC checks requested are performed on the same compute node as transcoding and packaging. Some of the services include:

  • General Validations including output size, duration, bitrate, captions and file size
  • Video Validations including frame rates, codecs, aspect ratio, level
  • Audio Validations including bitrate, codec, channels, channel layout
  • Manifest Validations including version numbers, declarations, encryption, discontinuity tags
  • API web service for complete integration into CMS/MAM/DAM platforms for production and broadcast workflows

Encoding.com plans to add new validations and features to the service based on user feedback and requirements.

"The quality control function has lagged behind other media processing functions and has remained an expensive, manually operated, on-premise step within an otherwise automated media processing workflow. Automating the QC function by moving it to the cloud and pairing tightly with transcoding and packaging workflows is the obvious future and will save our customers time and money and improve the overall quality of video reaching end viewers," said Greggory Heil, CEO at Encoding.com.
