Automatic audio-video synchronization detection

MulticoreWare Lip-Sync uses deep learning and AI technology to analyze video and audio to mark your media files as in-sync or out-of-sync. Human faces in the media files are found and matched to human speech, allowing LipSync to detect errors that are not identified by current automated video quality control systems.

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.
