Capture function – 4K recording

When you are recording in 4k format, a different bitrate is needed to obtain a recording quality similar to one in HD format. When the user is going to work in FULL HD resolution and sets a Custom slider (defined by the user) to the codec’s maximum value, e.g. 25000 kbps, afterwards saves such settings in a session file and loads such a session in 4k format, then the slider will also be set to the maximum value, but this time equal to 45000 kbps for the 4k format.

Using the 4k format you cannot record a file with MPEG codec. In the case of operating the Reckeen system with 2160p format, the H.264 video / AAC audio codec is available.

By clicking on the icon Configure Capturing ( with gears, on the right side of the icon Capture) , a window with Capture function configuration opens up.

Now, in the Format box, you can choose the type of the codec. The size of the files recorded on the hard drive can be controlled by the choice of compression. You can choose low, medium or high quality, or a quality defined by the user. In the first three cases, the system will automatically adjust the bitrate. Selecting a bitrate field allows you to set the desired value of the recorded file’s bitrate. In addition, it is possible to specify the location of the recorded file on your hard drive.

When all the parameters are set, close this window. To start recording simply click the Capture button, which will then change its color. To stop the recording, press the Capture button again. After recording is finished, a shortcut to the recorded video file will be added to tab 5 of Media 1 and Media 2 tray.
