In the digital migration project (DiMi) the Austrian public broadcasting ORF is transferring approximately 300,000 hours of AV-content from IMX and Digital Betacam cassettes into MXF D10 files. For this ORF has placed a 10 years contract with a service provider to transfer the video tapes.

In outsourcing its video cassette digitisation service, one of ORF's non-delegable duties is to examine the delivered archive files for compliance with the agreed quality characteristics, at least on a spot check basis.
For this task ORF decided to use Cube-Tec MXF Legalizer technology to validate the delivered video files for compliance with the agreed quality characteristics. To ease the validation process QC results are scored according to various custom criteria and can be checked within a web-based user interface.

The presentation will be given jointly by Christoph Bauer, ORF Multimedia Archiv, who will explain how the requirements were defined, and Jörg Houpert, Cube-Tec International, who will describe how the technical solution was adapted to special requirements at ORF.
