QC software company Vidcheck's media quality control and correction products Vidchecker and Vidfixer have been approved by the the Digital Production Partnership (DPP) compliance programme and have been awarded Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA) AS-11 DPP certification.  

Vidcheck is a specialist supplier of software for automated QC and correction of video and audio media files and its auto QC technology is already integrated with many third-party systems used for transcoding, file delivery and workflow management.

Vidcheck CEO Thomas Dove said, “Our products are the first and so far the only ones to be certified as a DPP-compliant analyser, reader and writer.”
“Expecting video and audio editors to be fully conversant with file-based media formats and their delivery specifications is problematic for many.

“The AS-11 UK DPP delivery standard makes those definitions much easier to grasp, which is why we’ve not only supported the establishment of DPP specifications but developed our technology to embrace them.”
The move from tape to file-based workflows introduced concerns about interoperability between different file formats and products. The DPP has established recommendations for quality control and for standardisation of technical and metadata requirements to ensure file-based video content can be distributed to audiences via multiple platforms.

AS-11 DPP files have  been written to satisfy the needs of UK broadcasters for the delivery of finished programs. The AS-11 DPP certificate confirms that a product has met the  criteria of the AS-11 DPP specification.

Vidchecker and Vidfixer are widely used automated QC tools  for production and post-production companies, edit houses, large media processing companies and broadcasters.

The software takes advantage of self-correcting heuristic algorithms to modify original content by the minimum amount needed to ensure compliance.
