One tool to handle all common input medium, CD and DVD Books and formats. It reports gapping and format violations, 3rd layer errors, and uncorrectable audio errors. ImageAnalysis ensures that problem CDs, DVDs, tapes, or file sets are discovered before time is lost in production. With the configurable interface, you decide the level of protection required. ImageAnalysis does the rest, automatically analyzing the image and interpreting the results. ImageAnalysis excels as a media and format analyzer in both premastering and the QC environments.
