A few of the highlights:

  • Proxy File Generation & Playback
  • Automatic Transcript Generation (beta)
  • Video Thumbnails in the Library
  • Closed Caption Display
  • Digital Signage on SnapStream Set-Top Boxes

Proxy File Generation & Playback

proxy-1 

SnapStream 9.2 is capable of generating low bitrate, low-res proxy files for the videos recorded by SnapStream. Watch your recordings using much less bandwidth, while clips and exports occur on the original high bitrate, high-res recordings.

If you’re working from home or on-the-road, then you can much more easily view your SnapStream recordings over slower connections. In addition, it allows a higher number of internal users to watch video concurrently from SnapStream.

Generating proxy files requires additional hardware for the processing involved, so please contact SnapStream Sales to get started.

 

Automatic Transcript Generation & Playback

automaticTranscriptGeneration

SnapStream 9.2 includes a beta version of Transcript Generation.

Are you recording live news conferences with no closed captioning? Recording your school’s morning announcements? No problem.

Select the items in the Library and use the Transcribe action in the More Actions menu. Transcript Generation works great for any TV channel or video stream that has no closed captioning or subtitles.

 

Video Thumbnails in the Library

videoThumbnail

The SnapStream Library now includes Video Thumbnails of your recordings. These thumbnails help convey the subject of each video and will make scanning for content much more efficient.

SnapStream 9.2 will automatically generate thumbnails for all of your future recordings.

 

Closed Caption Display

closedCaptionDisplay

SnapStream 9.2 adds new ways to view closed captions and subtitles. Now you can view closed captions directly over the video in the Web Player. Not only does this help the hearing impaired, but you can mute the sound and still read what’s being said.

SnapStream TV Set-Top Boxes in lobbies, libraries and other common areas can also display closed captioning.

 

Digital Signage on SnapStream TV Set-Top Boxes

SnapStream TV Set-Top Boxes can now display digital signage. Create a playlist in the Web UI and then select which set-top boxes to play. You can also browse to a specific playlist on the SnapStream TV Set-Top Box itself.

 

More

SnapStream 9.2 has so much more, like custom thumbnails for Tweets, live stream crossposting, quick download link for completed clips, and more. Please read the full release notes.

 

Schedule Upgrade to 9.2

(Usually 1 hour) 
SnapStream’s support team will perform the upgrade via a remote session.

SnapStream Advanced: Timecoded Tags

November 17 2016 by Eric Cohn

Timecoded tags reference specific moments during a recording. Using timecoded tags, you can identify and tag visual cues, non-verbal content and other important information that might not show up in the closed captioning or program guide data of your recording. Timecoded tags can be helpful in identifying and reviewing similar moments from different recordings.

Need to find each time a character makes a silly face? A time-coded tag called "silly face" would help you catalog and search on these specific moments in your library. It's simple to create and search for timecoded tags in SnapStream. Find out how below:


 Timecoded Tags

1. To create a time-coded tag, right-click (Ctrl+Click on a Mac) in the playback bar or click the clip0060.jpg button. You will be prompted to select a name for the tag or choose a pre-existing playlist. The time-coded tag will show as a blue line on your playback bar. To create a timecoded range tag, set a clip start and end point before clicking the "Timecoded Tag" button

2. Choose an existing tag from the dropdown menu or type a new tag. Click “Add” to finalize the tagging.

3. Timecoded tags are visible in the progress bar as a tag icon and blue line. Click on any tag to take you to the moment tagged.

4. Tags are indexed by SnapStream. Timecoded tags will appear in all search results organically, but you can also tailor your search to tagged terms only by using the search filter “TAG:”
