Registering Device Presets

The connection information for the external device used for capturing or exporting (camera, deck, web camera, microphone, input/output hardware) are registered and managed as the preset with the device preset. Capturing or exporting operation can be performed smoothly by loading the registered device preset.

Before registering device presets, connect the external device (e.g. camera) used for input/output to your PC, and turn it on.

[Online(Standard)]

Normally, you can get sufficient image quality at this setting.

[Offline]

Select this item to encode at a lower bitrate.

[Custom]

[Q] and [Max size] can be adjusted.

[Q] adjusts image quality. Set within the range 4 to 19 (0 to 18 in the case of a Grass Valley HQX).Setting a smaller value results in higher image quality.

[Max size] sets the maximum bitrate. You can set to limit the file size that increases inadvertently as a result of excessive noise in the video. Setting value “100” % means the same bitrate before codec compression. For example, 100% for 1440x1080 59.94i is a bitrate of approximately 750 Mbps. To set the upper limit to 200 Mbps, set “27” % as the maximum size.
