NEW DELHI — September 11, 2017

Venera recently announced the integration of Netflix Photon Analyzer with its file based QC solution, Pulsar. The integration will help Netflix content providers to verify their IMF packages against Netflix’s specifications alongside other quality parameters within Pulsar.

Normally, the content is validated against Photon during the content upload process as a mandatory step. This is however done as a last step when all the work on the content is already done. Spotting issues at this stage require content providers to rectify the errors and re-package the content for compliance with Photon.

For organizations, who are already using Pulsar to validate their content at earlier stages, this integration allows them to detect the Photon compliance issues much earlier, saving them significant time in case rectification is required. The Photon analysis results will then be integrated into the Pulsar XML/PDF reports making it easy for users to review them.

Venera’s co-founder Mr. Vikas Singhal said “Pulsar is used worldwide by a large number of production and post production companies who supply content to Netflix. This integrated capability will help them improve the efficiency of their workflows and will make it easier for the operators to perform a wide variety of QC checks with a single tool.”
