Brief Description

The R&S®VidChecker audio/video QC software analyzes the technical parameters and quality of audio and video data.

R&S®VidChecker, a second-generation quality control solution, provides detailed analysis of technical parameters in file-based audio/video content used in the professional broadcast domain. Tests cover the container layer (e.g. MXF or QuickTime files), bit stream syntax layer (e.g. AVC/H.264 ES) and baseband layer (audio/video/data). Quality analysis detects freeze frames, black frames, blocking artifacts and more.

R&S®VidChecker also makes it possible to correct individual video parameters such as video luma level, black level and video RGB gamut. Audio parameters, including loudness according to EBU R128 and ATSC (CALM) and audio levels, can be corrected as well.

R&S®VidChecker is used by broadcasters and video-ondemand service providers for the “incoming inspection” of external audio/video files that are to be processed in an internal infrastructure. In addition, the software is suitable for performing an “outgoing inspection” of the files, typically before they are played out, distributed or archived. This is important for post production houses and content providers who deliver audio/video files to broadcasters.
