Vidispine

This plug-in is using Vidispine to store, convert and stream your video files. Once installed, videos uploaded to ImageVault will be stored on your configured Vidispine server. This means ImageVault will be able to preview, publish and stream movies using the Vidispine API. From the editors perspective there is no difference between working with locally stored files or movies stored on Vidispine.

Configuration

The vidispine access is configured using a separate configuration section in the ImageVault.Core.Host.exe.config.

Example

The following is an example for a Vidispine configuration.

<configSections>
  <section name="vidispine" type="ImageVault.Vidispine.Common.Configuration.VidispineConfigurationSection,ImageVault.Vidispine.Common"/>
