FilePro Scout

As your file-based workflow evolves, QC doesn’t have to be an obstacle. FilePro Scout provides broadcasters and post production professionals with a unique QC solution that makes content ingestion and distribution seamless.

Facilities employing FilePro Scout (which supports both automated AND manual workflows) benefit significantly from time and cost savings when ingesting MXF AS-02 and OP-1A bundles. Scout’s user-defined profiles establish a delivery spec which can be communicated to vendors, allowing them to adjust their encoding workflow accordingly and deliver error-free bundles moving forward. The Scout significantly reduces errors that once complicated storage, editing and distribution of assets.

  • Automated validation tests on MXF AS-02 and OP-1A bundles
  • Deeper views into bundle structure, essence, and metadata
