Video Processing Options

Use these options to ingest video files for viewing. Elect to generate low resolution proxy videos or (also called companion files), preview images during video ingest. The low resolution proxies and preview images have a relatively small file size, making it quick and easy to search for video files and clips without having to wait for the retrieval of large, original video files.

Description

Generate low resolution proxy

1.Select to generate low resolution companion files. If not selected, the proxies do not create, but you can always view the original video in the Information Repository.

The low resolution file is a fraction of the size of the original video size. When searching for video, the low resolution video is the primary video footage received, but it is always teamed with the original source video. The original, stored either online, near-line, or offline is totally accessible when needed and under full Phoenix DEM management.

2.Select a resolution quality setting for the proxy/companion video. A lower setting produces a smaller file.
High - Same frame size as original, high video quality, audio is compressed to QDesign 44kH.
Medium - 320x240 frame size, medium video quality, audio is compressed to QDesign 44kHz
Low - 320x240 frame size, low video quality, audio is compressed to QDesign 14kHz

Phoenix DEM is unable to generate thumbnails and low resolution proxies for files that are not videos or images.

Generate preview image
