  The ViArchive XPRESS makes texting and uploading of video files to your video archives fast and easy. The practical and user friendly solution also allows screen capture, extracting segments from videos and burning files to data DVDs for hard-copy archives. ViArchive XPRESS
ViArchive XPRESS is a powerful desktop application for uploading of videos and segments to video archives. XPRESS allows users to prepare files for upload, and edit metadata before uploading. XPRESS also allows accessing server archives and searching and browsing files, as well as organizing server project folders.

Cut, text & upload... XPRESS is developed with the special needs of environments in mind, where only segments of video files are of interest to upload to the archives, like for example surveillance, police and defense. XPRESS provides a fast and user friendly way of cutting out the needed segment, adding metadata and uploading it to the server.

  ViArchive XPRESS Workflow  
  Workflow ViArchive XPRESS
  XPRESS provides batch actions which makes it fast and easy to execute the same action on multiple files at once. This provides good usability, speed and consistency.

Import media from camera or local harddrive and add your selected clips or segments to the queue. Then you can for example add metadata, cut, transcode or upload all files in one operation.
Batch Action
  ViArchive XPRESS batch actions:

apply metadata uploade files to server archives burn files to data DVD
cut and transcode media files ingest files to local harddrive export files to other applications

ViArchive XPRESS also provides one-click cutting, transcoding and uploading: define the segment in each clip which should be uploaded, press upload and the clips are cut, transcoded and uploaded in one simple action.

  ViArchive XPRESS Features  
  ViArchive XPRESS provides tools for importing media, adding metadata on files and along the timeline of clips, cutting, transcoding, uploading, burning DVDs and much more.

  Importing media is easy and convenient with ViArchive XPRESS. It features an own import media panel where the user can browse and view the content of various data sources. The files can also be filtered on media type to see only images/video/audio/MXF files.

When the needed files have been selected, they can be imported to the required destination in batch.

The import media panel allows users to keep original file names or use templates to rename files.

  Before uploading video files to the server archive, the user can add required metadata. When the metadata is added before upload, the videos are instantly searchable in the online archives.

Metadata... Users can easily add or change file info and keywords. The ViArchive XPRESS automatically recognizes previously saved sidecar to loaded video file. If the file has no sidecar, it is created when the user adds and saves metadata. The metadata layout is fully customizable in the template editor included in the application, and can be configured with masks for accurate filling in i.e. serial numbers etc.

Timeline scripting... XPRESS also allows users to add searchable keywords along the timeline of clips. The keywords can be added both to key frames and to durations along the time line of clips, and they can be used for clip navigation.

ODBC... ViArchive XPRESS provides an autofill function for adding metadata. This allows users to automatically fill in metadata from existing databases by an ODB Connection. Any metadata connected to the file’s task number is then added to the sidecar.
  Cut clip with presets CUT /TRANSCODE, MXF FILES & CAPTURE
  Users can prepare files for upload by cutting and transcoding clips. Any parts of the video clips which are not needed in the archive can easily be cut away, which saves both upload time and disk space.

Cutting & transcoding... Cutting out a segment is quick and user friendly. Users select the segment they wish to cut out, choose export format and save the file. Entire files may be transcoded as well. The solution supports the H264 / AAC codec (mp4 and f4v). Users may also cut and transcode files in batch.

MXF-files... ViArchive XPRESS supports unwrapping MXF files. This functionality extracts metadata and saves the video in AVI format with metadata in attached sidecar.

Screen capture... XPRESS offers a built in screen capture function which allows you to record your screen (i.e. videos) and save to your archives.
  ViArchive XPRESS provides for both server and hard-copy archives. Video files texted and ready for uploading to the archives can be added to an upload queue and uploaded by batch. You may also cut, transcode and upload in one action. Videofiles can be burned on a data DVD, straight from the application.

XPRESS also allows users to set up a local archive on the workstation. Ingested files are fully searchable in all metadata, and users may also use calendar search to find files from a particular date.

Batch Action

Users of ViArchive XPRESS can access server archives and execute actions on archived files. This allows users to search archived content and adjust metadata on files.

Furthermore, the users can cut, transcode and download files from the archive directly in the desktop application.

  Import Media MAP MODULE

ViArchive XPRESS provides a map module which allows users to sync videos with GPS data along the timeline.

A video file and a GPX file (containing GPS points recorded along with the video recording) can be paired and synced. This means that for example a clip which was recorded from a moving vehicle can be accompanied by a map of the route the vehicle was driving. Current location in the map is also showed  as you play the clip.

The map module can also be used to view and edit images GPS location.
