TEL AVIV—OOONA has unveiled OOONA QA, a new tool that gives broadcasters and language service providers an intuitive management system to track their quality control.

The new tool manages the quality assurance process for various asset types, including video, audio and subtitle files. All descriptive fields can be tailored to the user's requirements, the company said.

Content to undergo quality assurance can be entered manually or imported as an Excel file. Once logged, a ticket is generated, capturing issue type, source, description, severity and other relevant data to identify the error's exact location and origin, it said.

The system includes intuitive controls for collaboration among team members who work on fixing errors flagged until an asset is greenlit. Originally developed for HOT Telecommunications, Israel's largest cable TV and internet service provider, OOONA QA is now available to all enterprise clients.

"Effective project management and quality assurance are essential components of successful language operations,” said Wayne Garb, OOONA co-founder and CEO. "We remain committed to providing innovative solutions which enable our customers to overcome any production challenges they might face."

More information is available on the company’s website.
