The Ark are able to offer automated file QC utilising the latest Vidchecker software.

    We are BBC Studios approved and fully compliant with all aspects of DPP deliveries with the ability to produce both automated and eyeball reports.

    The Ark also offers a full compliance service if any failures are noted either in QC or Flash Pattern Testing analysis.

    Our experienced staff have a wide depth of knowledge across all modern and legacy acquisition formats and are able to provide a clear description of any issues and suggest appropriate solutions.

    Issues that arise from QC or PSE tests can be fixed in-house speeding up the delivery process.


    After using The Ark for many years, I can say there really isn’t a better service in or out of Soho. The Ark not only service the industry, they service the individual. From the huge multi-episode delivery to the smallest, most intricate QC. With their fast and efficient workflow and awareness of Industry fluctuations they stand head and shoulders above other facilities.

    CT Media have been working with The Ark for over three years for our post production and delivery needs. We represent a number of independent producers internationally and our biggest hurdle is ensuring that their content is technically high enough to meet international broadcast standards. The Ark work their magic in post, audio and delivery – bringing content up to spec. Although based in the USA we always send our material to The Ark. We trust Dan and his team 100% to get the job done at a fair price.
