Harris enhances Videotek QuiC media analysis server

Adds multi-box management feature to enable the analysis server to be pointed to external drop boxes

By CBR Staff Writer

Harris Corp. has announced enhancements to its Videotek QuiC media analysis server, a fully automated, file-based test and measurement tool that verifies the quality of compressed digital files before the content is distributed.

According to the company, the latest QuiC software update (version 1.7) includes a new multi-box management feature that enables the analysis server to be pointed to external drop boxes (folders) in any Windows-compatible server network.

Other new key features in QuiC version 1.7 include e-mail notification, which automatically notifies the operator when files fail to process; time code detection, which detects SMPTE-formatted time code data and works with MXF, GXF or MOV files; and closed captioning detection, which alerts operators when thresholds have been exceeded.

Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications, said: QuiC virtually eliminates the potential for human error, as it can automatically detect, report and repair files within the server network with very little human intervention. With QuiC, broadcasters have a more efficient method of content analysis, in many different formats, prior to distribution.
