What is a recording?

Your Standalone VGA Grid can record the output from each channel. (See Recorders for information on creating multi-track recorders using multiple channels.) Recordings are very robust and crafted so that even in the case of accidental system shutdown, recording files are closed off and playable.

You can choose to record simultaneously while streaming, or record without streaming.

Recording control is easily performed through the Admin panel, but can also be set up for third party tools using our APIs. See Control with HTTP commands and Control with RS-232 / serial port for information on controlling recordings with third party tools.

See Recorded files to learn how to download the recorded files.

Recording can also be controlled via the Epiphan Live control interface. See Controlling streaming and recording using Epiphan Live for more information.
