Quality Checks

Container Checks
MXF structure, DPP metadata, Compare Wrapper/Essence, Number video/audio streams, PIDs, File, Bitrate, SPS/PPS, Video/Audio duration, Timecode start/Continuity, Clean aperture, AFD, MOV Atom (iTunes), IMF validation of metadata & essence.

Video Checks
Video codec/profile, Encoding syntax, MBAFF, Video bitrate VBR/CBR, Frame size, Frame rate, Video buffer size, Frame aspect ratio, Pixel aspect ratio, GOP length, GOP structure, Field order flagged/baseband, Cadence, Drop frame, Chroma format, Luminance, Black level, Chroma level, RGB gamut, Quality/Blockiness, Analog drops, Digital drops, Video stripes, Corrupt frames, Letterboxing/Pillarboxing, Black frames/sequence, Color bars, Freeze frames, Layout checks, PSE flashing/harmful patterns (Ofcom / ITU), video segment reporting.

Audio Checks
Each track : Audio codec, Bit depth, Sample rate, Audio bitrate, Number of channels, Channel layout, Channel mapping, Tones, Phase coherence between channels, Track present during video, Min levels, Peak levels, Clipping, Clicks and pops, PPM, DialNorm, Integrated/Short term/Momentary loudness (ITU/EBU/ATSC/CAL/BS-1770), BLITS, GLITS & EBU test tone checks, digital silence.

Intelligent Automated Correction

Patented Video Correction
Corrects chroma levels if outside limits
Corrects black level if outside limits
Corrects RGB gamut if outside limits
Corrects small video dropouts (e.g. tape hits)

Additional Fixing Option
Insertion / removal / change of length of color bars
Insertion / removal / change of length of black sequences
Correction of start timecode
PSE flashing correction (Ofcom / ITU)
Video bitrate, Frame size, Frame rate, Aspect ratio
Transcode to different codec and format

Audio Correction
Peak Levels: peak level correction if TP dB limits exceeded
Loudness: loudness correction if given LKFS/LUFS exceeded
Audio levels: correction if PPM level limits exceeded and
peak attenuation
DialNorm: setting and correction

Additional Fixing Option
Channel configuration
Audio bitrate, Bit depth, Sample rate
Transcode to different audio codec

DNxHD, DNxHR and MJPEG only in MOV files and exclude re-encode by Vidchecker. Post-processing enables their re-encode using proprietary and open-source encoders.
