Venera is pleased to announce that Estonian Public Broadcasting (ERR), the public broadcaster in Estonia has selected Pulsar Automated Content Verification system for automating its content QC operations. ERR is deploying the Pulsar in its broadcast operations for automatic verification of large amount of assets being digitized from analog tapes.

“Pulsar is an important addition to our infrastructure and will help us obtain higher operational efficiencies from our content workflows. We looked at major QC players in the market and selected Pulsar because of its high performance and accuracy of results.” said Heiki Männik, Coordinator of Digital Archiving at ERR. He added “As Public Broadcaster, we verify new material coming daily from production and will use Pulsar for that but even more important role of Pulsar would be to keep an eye on large volumes of old archive material being mass-digitized from analogue tapes with its QC reports”.

We believe in developing long term relationships with our customers and we will continue to work with ERR to accommodate their growing requirements” said Vikas Singhal, Executive Director – Business Development at Venera.
