Learn everything you need to know about Ingest

In the context of video and streaming, we speak of ingesting content when referring to the transfer or copying of media files from their source to the digital storage destination. Basically, it is the process in which information is obtained from a database or storage system.

Content ingestion may be limited to the loading of a single file, but may also involve the processing of many files. For any file storage system to execute its function effectively, it is important to take care of the quality of content ingestion.

Relevant files must be captured and stored with the necessary information so that they can later be located and retrieved according to the user’s needs. Let’s take a look at some of the most widely used applications to ingest content:

  • Metus Ingest.
  • SL NEO Server.
