Ready for the Future

Telestream QC Products are always ahead of the curve. Emerging technology such as UHD, ABR, HDR, WCG and IMF are at the forefront of our feature list.

Easy to Set Up, Intuitive to Use

Simple to install on standard PC hardware, our products are operator friendly. Both offer an intuitive web-GUI, and offer an integrated media player for hybrid auto/manual review of QC reports.

Bad content? We’ll fix it, too

Our Vidchecker product offers patented automatic audio and video correction, as an additional option. If we find a problem with your content, we can fix it automatically with minimal impact on audio/video quality, saving valuable edit suite time. Aurora also offers an AutoFix option, allowing audio levels to be fixed and re-encoded.

Automated workflows

Aurora includes tools for implementing end-to-end workflows, including Smart Test Plans for automatically applying test plans to your incoming files, and a Decision Engine that enables automated post QC test file movement and corrective actions.

Systems integration

Aurora QC includes an easy to use SOAP API, as well as the legacy CeriTalk API, allowing leading vendors to seamlessly integrate Aurora QC into their solution workflows. Major partners include Amberfin, Aspera, Astec, Imagine Communications, iBroadcast, DataMiner, Vidispine, Dalet, and FileCatalyst.

Aurora and Vidchecker

With quality becoming more and more important, it's essential that your file-based QC platform drives efficiency, quality and cost saving within your workflow. Vidchecker and Aurora are our complimentary file-based Quality Control products. Both offer a comprehensive, up to date range of quality tests for video, audio and file containers.

Each product is equipped with a set of default test templates for major broadcasters and OTT platforms, helping you quickly identify content that does not meet requirements.

Vidchecker additionally offers our patented intelligent correction, which can fix your files automatically, saving valuable edit suite time. Aurora offers the ability to process ABR packages, and includes a number of features positioned for the growing OTT/VOD industry.

Media technology is constantly changing, so it’s essential that your QC platform stays up to date in order to provide the best quality experience for your customers. Telestream QC products are future proof, with UHD, WCG, HDR and IMF technology at the core of our feature set and roadmap.
