The Replay Source Module

Parent Previous Next

The Replay Source module acts as a (buffering) video source for the Replay Controller. It stores the video stream on disk using minimal CPU and allows for fast retrieval of video segments. Make sure to use a hard drive with sufficient throughput and storage: for 720p the file will be recorded at 83 Mb/s. To compute the bit rate you can use this formula:

bit rate = vertical resolution * horizontal resolution * frames per second * 3  / 1000000 Mb/s.

A description of all controls, commands and options is listed below (right click the module to get access to its popup menu).


The video source's video stream is displayed here. Click the display to select this module as active source in the controller.

Temporary Folder
