Welcome to the Netflix Partner Help Center. Have a question or need help with an issue? Send us a ticket and we'll help you to a resolution.

  1. Operator will be assigned or self assign the download fix check in Asset QC
  2. Data IO or Transfer team will download the supplemental IMF
  3. Operator or Data IO team will load IMF onto playback software
  4. Operator will perform fix check on flagged timecode issues from previous QC report as normal
    • They will resolve any issues that have been marked as fixed and make sure issues marked as Creative Intent or Best Possible are still present in the content.
    • Creative Intent and Best Possible flags that are confirmed to still be present should be left as is (do NOT downgrade, Resolve, or Disagree with any Issues or FYIs, which have been deemed creative intent or best possible).
  5. Operator will then watchdown, with 10 second handles on either side of the edit, all newly delivered video clips in the timeline
    • Each Asset path contains the file name of the included clip, please confirm that all included clips are present and have been checked.
    • If clips are longer than 10 minutes each and are not logically meant to be the base video layer, please reach out the Asset Specialist by raising a support ticket within the Asset QC UI, this may indicate a large chunk of program has changed and we may seek to reassign to the same Operator as a Full QC. For example, one clip will be the long play video, and subsequent clips will be shorter as changes are inserted. You do not need to fully watch down the longplay video, only portions that have changed.
    • The Operator will review each clip starting 10 seconds before the in edit point, and concluding 10 seconds after the out edit point.
    • They will confirm the in and out points either on the timeline or in the CPL. Clips may appear with edit points on the timeline. If they do not, use the Asset Map XML or the CPL to confirm where each video essence starts and stops.
    • They will confirm all clips have been checked by reviewing the Asset Map XML and navigating on the timeline to each individual clip. Example below
    • Screen_Shot_2021-02-02_at_09.54.07.png
  6. If the operators find any of, but not limited to, the following issues, they will be added to the report with an issue code, timecode in and out points and an accurate, concise description. 
    • VFX Compositing Errors
    • Unfinished VFX burn ins
    • Visible Matte Edges
    • Visible Frame Edges
    • Inconsistent Aspect Ratio
    • Dolby Vision Metadata Sync issues
    • Dolby Vision Metadata value mismatches (image is blown out or too dark)
    • Global Audio/Video Sync issues within the clip, not individual effects
    • Digital Hits
    • Media Offline Frames
    • Any major blocker issue that would severely disrupt member viewing experiences
    • Major inconsistencies from previous delivery or surrounding scenes
    • Please keep your focus to major Blockers for the viewer, incomplete or work in progress elements or inconsistencies from the rest of program. In depth, pixel level review of the new section is not required. If the Operator feels the content has changed so much that a full re-review of the content would be beneficial, please file a support ticket via Asset QC UI and the Asset Specialist will address.

  7. The operator will perform a 5-point integrity spot check of the entire content, per Fix Check SOW protocol.
  8. If additional issues are found in the Spot Check, they will be added to the QC report
  9. The operator will look over the issues resolved and flagged to make sure all contain all necessary information and are entered correctly.
  10. The operator will click Complete QC in the top right corner, completing the task.
