QCaaSTM – QC as a Service
- No QC software management
- No QC templates setup
- Submit content & specs – Get QC reports!
Do you need to QC your content with a File based QC system?
Would you prefer not to engage your staff in manage the QC system?
Would you rather just pay for what you use?
QCaaSTM is the answer!
QCaaSTM means QC as a Service. The service is designed for organizations who simply want to supply their content for QC and get the QC done using Pulsar/Quasar file QC systems. This allows organizations to focus on their core business and leave the template setup and QC to us.
How does QCaaSTM work?
Following is the process for QCaaSTM:
- You upload the content to our S3 bucket (assigned only to you) and supply us the technical specs for QA
- We will create the template and run QC on your files
- We will review the QC results and fine tune template parameters as needed
- We will deliver the PDF and XML reports to you
- Up to 2 iterations (1st – the original QC and 2nd – QC with tweaks to template based on your feedback) included in the price
- We will delete the content from S3 bucket
In most cases you will receive the first QC report within 24 hours for HD files. For 4K content, it may take up to 48 hours.
This is a pay as you go service, so you only pay for what you use! No setup fee and no long term commitment!
And we will do the first QC job (up to 30 minutes duration) for FREE!

Pulsar at IBC 2014
Video interview with Post Perspective at IBC 2014 discussing the new announcements and enhancements at the show.
Increasingly, viewers are now consuming content over heterogeneous devices and networks. This ranges from low end hand-held devices running over traditional wireless networks to high-end televisions streaming HD content over IP networks. Many of these viewers/users also sit behind corporate firewalls that do not allow anything other than HTTP content to pass through
Broadcasters, operators, and OTT service providers are processing increasing volumes of file based content. Where-ever possible, this content undergoes QC using traditional file based content QC solutions. These solutions support wide range of formats and quality checks but are not always the best answer to the emerging content QC needs
