Adding a Vantage transcode profile

GV STRATUS rules support transcode profiles you create using third party applications. This topic provide steps for the Telestream Vantageā„¢ application. Refer to the manufacturer's product latest documentation for the list of supported formats.

On the GV STRATUS server that hosts the GV STRATUS Xcode Control Engine (typically this is the GV STRATUS Core server), you can find Vantage workflow files at C:\Program Files\Grass Valley\STRATUS Transcode Engine\Profiles\Vantage. The files at this location are templates. They are not active Vantage workflows and GV STRATUS rules do not detect these files as transcode profiles. To use one of these template files, you must import it into Vantage Workflow Designer in the "STRATUS" category and activate it as a Vantage workflow. After it is activated in the "STRATUS" category, GV STRATUS rules automatically discover the Vantage workflow as a transcode profile. It is not necessary to copy files to the Xcode Control Engine host.

  1. Using the Vantage Workflow Designer, create the transcode profile as required by your workflow, with requirements as follows:
    1. Create a "STRATUS" category.
    2. Import or create Vantage workflows in the "STRATUS" category. If desired, you can copy template Vantage workflows from the Xcode Control Engine host at C:\Program Files\Grass Valley\STRATUS Transcode Engine\Profiles\Vantage to an accessible location and import them into Vantage Workflow Designer.
      • For an export rule, the profile description must start with the word Stratus.
      • For an import rule, the profile must be a format supported by the K2 and GV STRATUS system and the profile description must start with the words Stratus Import.
    3. Configure the Receive action. This must be the first action in the workflow.
    4. In the Receive action, for Media Files, set the Expected Nickname to Original.
    5. Configure the Flip action. This must be the second action in the wokflow.
    6. In the Flip action, set Input media file nickname to Original.
    7. In the Flip action, set Output Location to the OutputPath variable.
    8. When you are done editing the Vantage workflow, click the Release button and then the Activate button. The Vantage workflow is now activated in the "STRATUS" category.
    Only one output format per transcode profile is supported by GV STRATUS rules.
  2. Wait approximately one minute for the GV STRATUS system to detect the transcode profile.

Transcode profiles are available as Transcode Formats when configuring GV STRATUS rules.
