A lot can go wrong in the world of file-based media. A file could be encoded at the wrong bitrate, have incorrect captions or timecode, include freeze frames, have issues with audio loudness, or many other issues. Proper use of QC tools in the media supply chain can catch problems early, save time and money, and even avoid fines and lawsuits.
