videoQC QC In Your Browser

dt logo 1.5inchvideoQC software supports playing back a wide variety of file formats, including MXF/MP4/MOV/AVI, image sequences like DNG/EXR/TIFF/TGA, camera raw files like Cine/KRW/MLV/DNG, and even more esoteric files like AAF, IMF, DCP, AS-02, OP Atom, Raw, and JPEG-XS.  Because videoQC includes a FlowCaster component, these files can also be streamed out to your browser/webrtc/srt/udp/rtp/2110/cdi/ndi viewer.  videoQC also includes a REST api that allows remote control of the stream from the browser for loading, playing, pausing, seeking and setting up your file QC session.
