Ident - Mismapped
"Ident Mismap" is the effect in which the expected implementation of the Netflix Ident source tracks are incorrectly arranged to the expected audio channel order.
Ident Mismap impacts Netflix's Brand Identity, this does not meet the expectations of correct implementation.
Either the 5.1 or the Stereo audio mixes are incorrectly mapped to the expected channel orientation
How to Prevent:
Don't have the Ident on the timeline, where it has the potential for being manipulated. Drop in an un-altered ident only right before final export.
We are currently moving toward automating the Ident implementation process and allowing for the ingest of "Ident-free" deliveries. Effectively, removing the need for external partners to implement our Ident prior to delivering to Backlot.
Replace with original un-altered Ident, and re-export. Please refer to the following Help Center resource to assist with proper implementation: Master QC: Identifying and Implementing the Netflix "Ident"
