Access to multiple GV STRATUS sites

You can access assets on remote GV STRATUS sites.

If you have remote sites configured in your system, the Navigator panel displays nodes for those sites. Only the Assets node is displayed under remote sites. Asset indicators identify assets on remote sites.

When you access multiple GV STRATUS sites, you do so from the context of your local site. Both local and remote GV STRATUS client PCs must be able to resolve the hostnames of local GV system servers, such as Core Server, Proxy Server, and K2 system. This local site is your primary site, where you do your normal workflow tasks, such as ingesting, editing, and playing out on channels. When you access a remote site, you can search and browse the remote assets, but you cannot edit or do other operations on remote assets. You must transfer the remote asset to your local site in order to apply the full range of GV STRATUS operations to the asset. Asset transfers are allowed both ways between your local and remote sites.

The GV STRATUS system uses progressive download to display low-resolution proxy video of assets from remote sites. This minimizes the effect of a slower load time when you load an asset into Inspector or some other GV STRATUS viewer. Progressive download selectively downloads and caches the portion of the low-resolution proxy video asset just before and after the current scrub bar position in the video player, until finally the entire proxy file asset is downloaded. As long as the GV STRATUS application remains open, the downloaded proxy asset remains locally available. If you load the proxy asset into the video player again, the GV STRATUS application uses the locally cached proxy file asset. In the GV STRATUS viewer, a spinning progress indicator displays caching and shaded indicators on the scrub bar display the portion of the proxy asset cached. You can also edit Player User Preferences to control when progressive download occurs.
