    Volicon Media Intelligence service constantly ingests and stores each video and audio stream in native resolution and bit rate. The Low Bit Rate Proxy (LBRP) is used to create lower-resolution copies of the original stream. There are several reasons for creating a LBRP of incoming video content:

  • It allows multiple users to access the Volicon Media Intelligence service simultaneously, without interfering with one another.

  • It minimizes impact on network resources.

  • It allows the Volicon Media Intelligence service to store content on each server for much longer periods of time.
