Video ageing has been developed in response to customer demand for video to be managed more economically, both in terms of space and size. Cathexis has answered this call by building a dynamic tool for our 2020 software. This feature allows video footage in one database to be transcoded, in a reduced size, and stored for a longer time in a second database. The goal is for the video to take up less space, so that more days of recording can be stored. The beneﬁt is greater freedom for users to make the most of their video space.
