Agile,powerful, multi screen content quality assurance.
ArgoNavis HD/SD Multi Screen Multi Format QA/QC System
The uniqueness and completeness of your programming content sets
you apart from everyone else.
ArgoNavis QA/QC is designed to help you ensure the quality and
integrity of the video you create and deliver. Consistently. All of the
The Vela ArgoNavis QA/QC System is a powerful, versatile, and advanced
professional HD/SD system with the ability to support multi-format, multi-screen
content from extremely high bit rate mezzanine content to content for mobile
devices — and everything in between.
Build confidence in the quality of your programming. Whether it is at the output
of the editor, at the mezzanine level, or after transcoding into broadcast, cable,
web, and mobile formats, the ArgoNavis QA/QC provides the tools and analysis
necessary to ensure your content meets the exacting quality specifications you
set for your operations!
Automate the process of performing Quality Assurance/Quality
Control on files containing content in different formats, resoluions, and
bitrates – faster than real-time. Perform comprehensive checks for
video and audio characterisics and properties of interest to you –
detection, decoding, parsing, extraction, recording and archiving of
SDI and VANC data, Closed Captioning data, frame integrity (black/
frozen frames), DPI, audio levels, missing audio, LKFS/loudness
measurements and video and audio metadata. Generate and
communicate alerts as necessary when pre-defined events such as
incidences of non-conformance or non-compliance are encountered
Automatically generate and disseminate logs and records of
measurements and data collected during the QA/QC process.
File Based Workflow Tools
Use Vela’s File Based QC Toolkit to verify critical MPEG parameters.
Detect, extract, decode, and log 608 708 Closed Captioning. Analyze
LKFS measurements for CLAM Act Compliance and correct non
conforming files. Detect black and static images for quality control or
for Digital Program Insertion
Multi Format and Multi Screen Codecs
Support for the formats most widely used in the industry today with
the power and flexibility to add new codecs in the future. Current
formats include MPEG2, H.264, AppleProRes, QuickTime, DV, DNxHD,
MXFOP1a, S02, MP4, MOV, WMF, VC1, and many others.
LKFS and CALM Act Compliance
Measure LKFS, set user definable LKFS thresholds, and alarms when
thresholds are exceeded. Use the File Based LKFS analysis tools to
perform faster than real time analysis and correction of non conforming content.
Detect, decode and display 608 and 708 Closed Captioning during file
playback in real time or detect, extract, decode, and log Closed
Captioning faster than real time using the CC Viewer, one of our file
based workflow applications.
Utilize the Decision Making and Alarms features of the ArgoNavis
QA/QC by setting upper and lower thresholds for audio amplitudes,
LKFS, Closed Captioning detection and decoding, and black and static
Create an audit trail for your QC process by utilizing the reporting features
of the ArgoNavis. Log key parameters during file playback including
MPEG parameters, Closed Captioning, violations of thresholds
and setpoints, and Pass/Fail criteria.
SDI Input for Baseband Monitoring
Monitor your baseband HD/SD SDI signals, render video and audio,
extract and decode 608, 708, and Line 21 Closed Captioning, monitor
VANC data such as Broadcast Flag, Active Format Descriptor(AFD),
and Audio Metadata, set alarm thresholds for monitored data.
Outputs include HD SDI, SD SDI, HDMI, Component, Composite,
S-Video, AES Audio, Analog Audio. HD/SD SDI input for monitoring
