Our optional Server Side Recording (SSR) feature provides the industry’s most efficient means of creating OnDemand media from Live content. With SSR, you control the recording/archiving process directly on the EarthChannel server. At the conclusion of a Live event, your OnDemand program is ready to be published in just a few seconds.
Why Is It Important?
- It saves time.
Typically, Live content is recorded (or archived) locally on the your encoder and then uploaded. This can be a time and bandwidth consuming task. A live 5-hour meeting may require several additional hours (depending on your upload speed) to upload a locally-archived file to the distribution servers. With SSR you no longer need to upload media — it’s already on the server as soon as the live event is concluded.
- It allows non-video personnel more control of their meeting.
Once the cameras are running, any staff member can start and stop the recording process with the push of a single button. This is ideal for fixed-camera environments and allows even non-technical staff members full control of the video archive for their meeting.
Pricing is based on the size of your community and billed annually.
How It Works
Before a meeting or program starts, you can trigger a remote recording directly on the distribution server by clicking a single button found within your EarthChannel dashboard. While the program is airing live, an archive is captured directly into your EarthChannel VOD area. Upon completion, there’s nothing to upload — viewers can now view your program within a few seconds of completion of the event.
