Cast QC is a QC mode on Asset QC. It serves as a way for our trusted QC Vendors to review the HDR, SDR 5.1 and 2.0 streams created from the IMFs delivered to Backlot before they launch on service. The purpose of Cast QC is to ensure that all Branded IMFs are evaluated for technical quality while also reducing facility bandwidth required to perform this work.
The objective approach in Cast QC matches all Master level QC for Netflix, though the scope of technical review is a bit more limited by design. Any QC errors found upon Cast QC should be flagged on Asset QC.
