Format settings

These settings are required on all GV STRATUS systems.

Format settings let you configure video and audio settings. The GV STRATUS application uses these settings as follows:
When the Render Engine conforms a complex asset, such as a GV STRATUS sequence, into a simple clip, the Format settings define the format of the simple clip.
Format settings are inherited by EDIUS XS when the application is launched and a new project is created.
Format settings define the video standard settings, such as PAL or NTSC.
GV I/O Appliance
Format settings define the valid format for configured channels and ingested assets.
Storyboard and Source Viewer
Format settings define the video standard, audio reference, etc.

Access these settings in the GV STRATUS Control Panel application.

To locate these settings, click General | Format | Formats
