The Dirac Encoder Page

On this page you can specify how your raw video data should be encoded with the Dirac codec.

The Bit Rate field may take a number of Kilobits per second. It is very hard to recommend a suitable bitrate because it depends on a number of factors, including the width and height of the video, and the amount of movement in the content, as well as your total available bandwidth and the bandwidth of your viewers.

The worker drop-down choice allows you to choose what computer this component should run on, for instance if the camera is attached to a different computer that is available via the network. This allows you to distribute tasks across several server computers. See the Deployment chapter to learn how to create extra workers. The Configuration Assistant would then offer these workers in the drop-down choice after connecting to their manager.
