According to Interra’s VP of Global Sales and Business Development, Ashish Basu, while automation has been transformative for the broadcast community in terms of speeding up workflows, auto QC tools does not fully implement an organisation’s overall QC policy. Relying on a combination of auto QC and manual intervention is ultimately the best approach to understanding false negatives and positives, detecting critical issues that aren’t yet detected by automation alone, and taking appropriate corrective measures.
He believes integrating manual QC as a part of BATON platform ensures a complete and seamless QC flow for broadcasters.
