Suggested upload file specs

As an 'Owner' you can upload contents to ARRI Webgate, manage them or make them available to other users.

Container formats

You can upload clips in the container formats .mxf, .mov, .m4v or mp4 with common codecs like H.264, ProRes etc. which are then converted by ARRI Webgate to optimized streaming formats.

Audio channel assignment

The audio channel assignment of the video file should ideally be an interleaved stereo file. You can also upload videos with multi-channel audio to ARRI Webgate. In this case ARRI Webgate will perform a generic downmix. In the case of 5.1 interleaved audio, ARRI Webgate expects the audio channel assignment: L, C, R, LS, RS, LFE. If you upload a video with 5.1 multi-mono tracks to ARRI Webgate, the assignment L, R, C, LFE, LS, RS is expected.
