Content Preparation

Quality Control

Our quality control service can be tailored specifically to your needs and those of your end-user, supporting UHD-HDR, HD and SD. LMH will work with you to establish an appropriate QC ethos – be that 100% full QC in our purpose built 7.1 suites, or our DPP-compliant quality control service. We also support Harding PSE testing and certification for photosensitive epilepsy, assisted file-based QC, EBU R128 loudness testing, and full real-time manual three-point and five-point quality assurance reporting from both tape-based and file-based assets.

LMH can provide solutions to remedy any issues that may arise from a QC rejection and will support mandatory QC-tailored reports that are stipulated by both broadcasters and VOD platforms such as Netflix.

Our years of expertise in QC processing mean LMH is well placed to work collaboratively with not just the content owner, but also the recipient and other interested parties to ensure a smooth delivery process.

Our approach: Assisted quality control

At LMH, we believe in offering a bespoke file-based ‘assisted’ quality control service. We know from our combined years of experience that automated QC alone rarely guarantees the client a satisfactory outcome, often leaving you with large PDF reports and unanswered questions about the quality of your content.

So, while we utilise Vidchecker, a software-based platform, to quickly and cost-effectively flag up potential QC issues, we always ensure that your content is run past our expert eyes. And we work in collaboration with you and the content creator to make sure we identify the best solution to any problems.

Our QC facilities

Our content services facility boasts three purpose-built studios for editing, post production and quality control. LMH has invested in the latest UHD-HDR infrastructure in our edit suites, including cutting edge Sony BVM-X300 and Canon DP-V2410 UHD-HDR broadcast monitors. We are equipped to help you respond seamlessly to the growing demand for delivery in these formats.

DPP and other accreditation

LMH is a proud member of the Digital Production Partnership (DPP), the broadcast industry body that is responsible for establishing standardised file delivery specifications. Our expert team boasts a vast array of experience in preparing and delivering DPP-compliant files. We are a member of FACT, and are BBC Studios approved, so you can rest assured that your content is in safe hands.
