Telestream acquires Vidcheck
We are thrilled to announce that we have acquired UK-based Quality Control (QC) technology company, Vidcheck. Vidcheck develops automated QC solutions for file-based production workflows.
Its products are used by broadcasters, facilities, and content owners worldwide, such as ITV, BBC, CBS and many others.
Vidcheck has been very successful in Europe. As part of the Telestream portfolio, they’ll be able to leverage our strong sales and market presence around the globe, to provide its customers even more effective and efficient solutions.
For Telestream customers, the acquisition of Vidcheck technology allows us to extend our Vantage offering. Vidchecker, the company’s flagship product, is the gold-standard for file-based automated QC with correction. Adding Vidchecker to the Telestream product line will offer our customers an even stronger choice, especially with QC becoming a more and more critical component of many workflows.
“Vidcheck’s team and product portfolio line up very well with our area of expertise,” said Dan Castles, CEO of Telestream LLC. “It is not just some great technology and products that we are acquiring but also a gifted, talented and passionate team that will reinforce our resources here at Telestream. We look forward to leveraging our combined know-how to offer our worldwide customer base an even more complete and exciting product portfolio.”
“Telestream is a great home for Vidcheck, technically, commercially and culturally,” commented Thomas Dove, CEO of Vidcheck Ltd. “The companies have complementary technologies which will feed into both product ranges, the most obvious being the perfect fit of Vidchecker auto QC with Vantage. With Telestream’s sales and support reach, Vidchecker will naturally be available to a much wider set of customers, particularly in North America. Being part of Telestream provides a great launch pad for the next phase of growth for Vidcheck.”
About Vidcheck and Vidchecker:
Vidcheck provides elegant, advanced software applications to automatically check and correct video and audio in file-based digital video, focusing on the requirements of the broadcast industry, at a cost-effective price.
Vidchecker is an easy to install Windows software application for PCs/servers. It removes the labor intensive tasks of manually checking conformance by eye and hand, the need to check video/audio compliance with waveform monitors and audio loudness meters, and to manually correct levels with video processing amplifiers, and other tools. The GUI is accessed through a web browser either on the local machine or remotely over a network. It is optimized for checking file-based video before and after distribution, and for use by broadcasters for checking files received from post production and content distributors to ensure that file, video and audio parameters and levels are correct and ready for broadcast.
We’re excited to be able to offer an even more complete and exciting product portfolio to our customers, and the Telestream team just got some fantastic new team members. Welcome, Vidcheck!
