Adding a Harmonic WFS transcode profile

GV STRATUS supports transcode workflow with third party applications. This topic provides steps for the Harmonic WFS application. Refer to the manufacturer's product latest documentation for more info.

  1. From the Windows Start Menu, click Programs | Rhozet | WFS.

    The WFS Manager (Rhozet Workflow Manager) opens.

  2. Select Tools | Workflow Editor.
  3. Click the + button next to Workflow Templates.

    The New Workflow dialog opens.

  4. Create your new workflow, by entering the following:
    1. Enter a Name for the workflow.
    2. Enter the Description as follows:
      • If you want to use it as a STRATUS Export transcode profile, enter Stratus in the description field.
      • If you want to use it as a STRATUS Import transcode profile, enter Stratus Import in the description field.
  5. Click the Create button.

    The Workflow Editor shows the properties of the new Workflow.

  6. Right-click on the Transcode Targets property and select Add Target.

    A new target node displays.

  7. To configure the Preset, click the Browse button.

    The Preset Editor displays.

  8. Select a preset from the list, or create your own “User Preset”.
  9. Click the Select button to use the Preset and close the dialog.
  10. To configure the Output Path of the new target, click the Browse button.

    The Output Path dialog opens.

  11. Select any path and click Open.

    It is required to be able to save the Workflow Template, but it will be overwritten by the GV STRATUS Transcode Engine when the workflow is executed from GV STRATUS application.

    Both Preset and Output Path are now configured for the new target.

  12. Click the Apply button to apply the new changes to Harmonic transcode workflow.
  13. Repeat steps 3-12 above to configure more transcode profiles, if needed.

    You can use the new workflow after 2 minutes, for the GV STRATUS Transcode Engine to query the list of workflows from Harmonic WFS.

  14. Lastly, restart the GV STRATUS Control Panel application to get the newly configured transcode profiles.

The Harmonic WFS transcode profiles are available as Transcode Formats when configuring GV STRATUS rules.
