Video is stored on the in-vehicle devices, and can be quickly and easily downloaded and archived to the video download storage on the central server through a wireless network. Downloading can be either automatic or scheduled. Downloading events that contain evidence, without removing hard drives, improves fleet operation and reduces manpower.
Use Depot Manager Navigator to view, edit, and save the downloaded video.
Before downloading video to the video download storage on the central server, you should configure the following settings, which can affect the video download speed and quality. These settings include the number of simultaneous downloads allowed, the number of allowed retry attempts, email notifications for automatic downloads, and the use of primary stream (higher quality, larger files) or secondary streams (lower quality, smaller files).
Ensure that these configurations are as described below to turn on automatic downloads. When automatic downloads are enabled, Depot Manager will automatically transfer tagged events from the recorders to the server. You can configure how often Depot Manager checks for tagged events.
To download video to the central server, you must schedule a video download. You can schedule downloads from individual devices or from many devices, which is called a bulk download.
You must have the correct permissions to create video download requests.
If you have multiple videos that you want to download, you can use the Bulk Download feature to schedule multiple downloads. This feature allows users to create video requests via an Excel file.
Synchronous downloading is useful for downloading video from all channels at the same time.
