Quality assurance (QA), compliance and localization services provider Testronic has integrated the Iris Media Platform from GrayMeta as a QC playback tool in their testing facility, used to test post production masters and OTT files.
By integrating Iris into its playback tool testing platform, Testronic adds another QC process for Master Quality Control and OTT deliverable package, with Iris being equipped with advanced video and audio tools, a QC report generator and collaboration features. The Iris Media platform uses metadata templates to check technical requirements and verify and double-check for false positives.
“GrayMeta’s Iris is a vital player in our various workflows. It really sets the standard for QC players. Whether over HDMI or SDI, and from Dolby Vision to Atmos, and ProRes to DPX, it provides great versatility, reliability, and is easy to use,” said Jason Gish, president of film and TV for Testronic. “Additionally, the GrayMeta support team is top notch and a pleasure to work with, which is critical in this fast-paced environment with changing client needs and file types.“
Chi-Long Tsang, SVP and principal architect for GrayMeta, added: “Iris enables Testronic to drive efficiency up and costs down with its software visualizations, wide codec support, and requirements templatization, eliminating the need for additional equipment in the QC/QA process. With the ability to visualize IMF and play it back as reference, Testronic is able to deliver media with confidence that nothing was missed.
“Having an ability to import QC reports from the major ‘Automated QC Systems’ also provides time savings as operators can now see points of interest on the timeline, jump to them, validate, and move on to the next piece of content.”
GrayMeta will demonstrate the Iris Media Platform at NAB NY 2019 Oct. 16-17 at stand N1120.
