Severity Structure:

FYI

N/A

Issue

The Stereo audio contains the incorrect implementation of the Netflix Ident.

How to Prevent:                          

"Ident Last"
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.

"Ident-Free Delivery"
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. 

Solution:
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"
