How are minutes calculated?

We’re applying multipliers based on computing resources required to perform QC checks. In cases where a number of multipliers are applicable they will be applied. Minimum duration for billing for QC service is 5 minutes of SD or HD content. Multipliers apply - e.g. for 4K/UHD or with PSE check included content minimum duration is 10 minutes. Unused minutes included in subscription are not carried over to the next billing period.
