NOA Upgrades QualityChecker Content Assessment Tool
Now features enriched analyses, including vector shapes and refined timeline visualization
Vienna, Austria — 16 November, 2021
AV digitizing and archiving specialist NOA GmbH has added significant features to its QualityChecker content assessment tool for jobDB™ and mediARC™ that they will be showcasing at this year’s IBC Show.
As application for validation and adjustment of video material produced in house or externally, NOA QualityChecker streamlines and optimizes the archive migration process and improves efficiency of the entire archival business process. The content assessment tool is key in streamlining the entire digitization process reducing overall project costs substantially by facilitating job separation between ingest and technical QC.
During systematic validation of video material, operators must manage multiple tasks and decisions before submitting content into the archive. QualityChecker allows QC engineers to load open tasks directly within the stand-alone client application and present to the user optimized tools and features to process tasks like locating error sources, ensuring the technical quality is within parameters, certifying that content and its descriptive metadata coincide, as well as trimming (in/out) or extracting individual segments from the content.
As part of QualityChecker’s recent enhancements, an improved engine results in even faster operation, including quicker task loading, combined functions, and improved productivity.
The system also features a new gateway that puts each scenario into context, making it easier for the operator to make decisions when validating and processing content. In addition, improved content assessment results in the possibility for staff to assess certain quality aspects in only a few seconds, no matter the overall length of the content. What’s more, NOA has added visual interpretation of the complete task to help minimize potential errors even further. So, for example, staff can now decide to disregard possible errors should they consider them of no consequence, or they can opt to redo the digitization process entirely, providing the issue doesn’t originate in the previous copy.
“We’ve upgraded the entire process from a production perspective by combining analyses, including vector shapes and improved timeline visualization,” explains NOA’s managing partner Jean-Christophe Kummer. “We know that a quality assessment tool plays a critical role in successfully scrutinizing all content, so we are constantly working to enhance QualityChecker’s performance to ease the daily operations of our clients.”
NOA QualityChecker, a part of NOA’s actLINE™ product family, is provided as an upgrade or extension to any existing and future video digitization projects with FrameLector in jobDB™ or mediARC™ environments.
NOA will showcase these new enhancements and other solutions at IBC 2021 on booth 8.C51.
