Default recording properties define limits for individual recordings when the corresponding limits are not set at the user or group level (in LifeSize UVC Platform). For example, if the disk quota has been set to a higher or lower value for a user or one of the user’s groups, that value applies for the user. If the disk quota for the user and all of the user’s groups specifies Use Defaults (at the user and group level in LifeSize UVC Platform), the default property applies.
Administrators set default recording properties in Administer > Content Management > Default recording properties - Edit.
|Disk quota (in MB)||Sets the maximum amount of disk space any user can use for recordings. The default is 1 TB, the capacity of the server. You can set a lower limit in the text box.
Select Administer > System Status to monitor system status.
|Recording length (in hours)||Sets the maximum recording length for a single video. The default is 8 hours. You can set a new limit (in hours and fractional hours, for example, 2.5 for two hours and 30 minutes).|
|Maximum recording bit rate (in kb/s)||Sets the maximum recording bit rate. The default is 1152 kb/s. You can set a new limit (in kb/s). Lower bit rates consume less disk space and bandwidth, but also reduce video quality.|
|Default recording bit rate (in kb/s)||Sets the user default bit rate. The default is 400 kb/s.
Lower bit rates consume less disk space and bandwidth, but also reduce video quality. Settings of 256 or 384 are appropriate for videos intended to be viewed remotely on the internet. Videos intended to be viewed on the LAN can safely use higher bit rates.
