ContentBridge has added Vidchecker to their cloud-based digital supply chain solution. Vidchecker’s automated quality control of both video and audio ensures a more cost-effective way to monitor, report and correct problems in content. “Vidchecker is a powerful addition to ContentBridge’s solution for digital distribution of content,” says Fernando Gonzalez, ContentBridge Director Of Operations and Sales. “It’s built like our software, to work in the cloud, physical or hybrid environments. Based on a client’s needs, it can be scaled to meet any level of demand. It’s highly customizable, allowing one to choose any set of parameters for file probing. From light scans to analysis of single frames and audio samples.”
The combination of ContentBridge’s software solution with Vidchecker reduces costs associated with the time consuming, tedious and manpower heavy task of traditional quality control methods. “Vidchecker also allows us to perform a technical Q/C with no margin for error,” says Gonzalez. “This allows ContentBridge’s outbound media to be Q/C’d/tested by Vidchecker based on settings matched to meet the ingest specifications required by each of our retailers, i.e., Netflix, iTunes, Hulu, all completed faster than in real time.”
ContentBridge recently won a 2016 Stratus Award in the category of Cloud Computing – “Software as a Service.” With Vidcheck, ContentBridge continues to democratize today’s digital supply chain, giving every content owner access to the same powerful software that allowed the world’s 2nd largest entertainment conglomerate a seamless transition from physical product distribution to 24/7 digital streaming entertainment.
Just a few mouse clicks in the cloud gives content holders the ability to instantly move their entertainment into the digital domain. Whether it’s just one short film or a library of 500 Karate movies. The ingenious software, which took over 110,000 hours to develop, has saved entertainment companies millions of dollars. It allows any owner the ability to digitally distribute and monetize their content worldwide and on-spec to over 200 different digital retailers.
