MediaArea is an open source software company focused on digital media analysis. We develop and support tools that aid developers in integrating digital media file investigation into their work.
We do mostly open source code, without rejecting proprietary code on request.
MediaInfo is our flagship product with 4 000 downloads per day, we also currently work on MediaConch, and we worked in the past on QCTools, BWF MetaEdit and some other projects.
Each member of the team is unique and commits code under their own name. Their work is visible via their respective accounts listed below.
Release manager, scripting, bug fixes
Different levels of involvment, from self-funding, self-management, and full development to external funding, external management, and partial development.
These projects are open source, you can participate too; additionnally, if you don't like what we do of these projects, just fork and offer a better version.
MediaInfo is a convenient unified display of the most relevant technical and tag data for video and audio files.

AVI MetaEdit is a tool that supports embedding, validating, and exporting of metadata in AVI (Standard and OpenDML) files. This tool can also enforce file structure and metadata recommendations and specifications from U.S. National Archives, Microsoft, and IBM.
Initial funding of AVI MetaEdit was provided by NARA (National Archives and Records Administration) supported by the FADGI, with project management from AVPreserve.
DV Analyzer is a technical quality control and reporting tool that examines DV streams in order to report errors in the tape-to-file transfer process, such as video error concealment information, invalid audio samples, timecode inconsistency, inconsistent use of arbitrary bits in video DIF blocks, and DIF structural problems.
DV Analyzer was managed by AVPreserve.
We are not directly involved in these projects but we use them for A/V analysis, and we sometimes send patches to these projects.
Standardization of open source formats focused on lossless storage.
Matroska / FFV1 / FLAC.
Vrecord is open source software for capturing a video signal and turning it into a digital file.
SignalServer is intended to become a web app to accompany QCTools.
A lot used by ourselves for A/V analysis, used by QCTools.
This app helps users through the command generation process so that more people can reap the benefits of FFmpeg.
We also organize or participate to several A/V related events.
