QC Player 2019 Brochure (new) |
The new software is powered by Colorfront Engine™ to ensure color and metadata fidelity, and harnesses powerful monitoring, analysis and validation tools that feature in Colorfront Transkoder, to enable quality control on a wide range of realtime UHD/HDR/WCG content.
Colorfront QC Player delivers real-time support for all major RAW UHD HDR formats from the latest digital cinematography and DSLR cameras. These include: Alexa ARRIRAW – both MXF-wrapped and .ARI files; Panasonic VariCam 4K VRAW and Panasonic AVC-Intra; Sony F55 and F65 RAW, XAVC and X-OCN; Blackmagic DNG; Canon RAW; RED R3D; Apple ProRes; plus DPX and TIF sequences from scanned sources. It also supports playback of JPEG 2000 content, including DCPs (2D and stereo, encrypted, with subtitles) and IMF packages, such as lossless/high-bit-rate UHD Dolby Vision mezzanine masters with dynamic metadata and Dolby CMU control.
For essential UHD HDR image analysis tasks, QC Player includes waveform, vectorscope, histogram, split-screen, colour gamut and light-level metering tools. It features framing guide overlays for title/text/logos/graphics safe areas, plus image reframing and burn-in/watermarking tools. QC Player also comes with audio tools supporting embedded audio, WAV files and up to 24-channel audio output.
“More and more, HDR is a fact of life for post facilities around the world,” said Bruno Munger, Director of Business Development at Colorfront. “Colorfront QC Player delivers a convenient solution, with a broad, robust toolset, to perform essential QC and verification tasks on HDR footage, while avoiding the financial penalty of investing in separate 4K/UHD HDR-capable video monitoring and analysis hardware solutions, which can run into the many ten of thousands of dollars.”
Colorfront QC Player is priced at USD $10,000, with annual rental option of USD $5,000, both including support and updates.
