Reel-Check is a suite of programs that run on a performance Windows PC without special hardware. The Solo version is intended for individual desktop use. It performs a complete set of quality control tests on any audio/video media content.
Reel-Check Solo can work with all professional video formats including uncompressed component types or RGB 4:4:4, all standard and high definition dimensions. Files can also be in any compressed type, subject to a suitable Codec being available. Sub-broadcast (small) formats and 2K can also be handled.
Embedded audio, stereo or multi-channel surround-sound can be extracted and checked alongside the video for audible or visual impairments on a frame by frame basis. Solo also has all the facilities of a waveform and vectorscope. product.
product is capable of automated checking ingested or finished file
content on local or network drives. The user can set a table of the test
parameters and tolerances, and any excursions outside these defined
limits are logged with associated timecodes and detail notes. Also a

The log file can either be stored locally on the Reel-Check’s host computer or a networked drive for subsequent scrutiny or printing. Reel-Check logs can be easily further edited in ‘Word’ or any other common word processor as required.
Reel-Check Solo uses highly sophisticated image processing algorithms and audio analysis engines. The software checks for visual impairments in baseband-decoded video and audio problems due to poor encoding, degradation or originating from the encoded source content.
Each test can be enabled or disabled by the user from a simple menu. The test parameter ‘sets’ can saved or recalled from profiles. Thus a specific profile can be standardised or passed from manager to operator etc. With media-files, the test operation can either be run at normal play-speed or faster than real-time.
For live sources, Solo will work with most PC compatible capture cards or devices as well as DV or HDV over firewire. QC of taped media can be tested in this configuration.
For each test parameter, an alarm or software GPI can be set-up. If those set events are detected, an on-screen message alerts the operator or some external process or operation can be triggered.
As well as displaying any combination of Video and waveforms of the operator’s PC monitor or dual monitors, the software can be configured to playout Video to a SDI, HD-SDI or HDMI interface card for connection to TV monitor or other equipment.Reel-Check Solo does not have the additional automation features of either Reel-Check SE (Single Engine) or EV (Enterprise Version) but has profile compatibility so as to be a system component.
