Ingest to scoopa can be automated to deliver a seamless experience from the creator to the recipient. Besides our web-uploader and our smartphone-app - you can upload assets directly to an S3 Bucket. We call that DCI (Direct Cloud Ingest).
You can request access to DCI anytime by getting in contact with us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A dedicated S3-Bucket will then be created by us and linked to your desired platform.
We will provide you with the necessary credentials.
Possible connectivity to S3:
You have multiple options to upload your assets to your newly created S3-Bucket:
Manual, using a File-Transfer-Application (for example: Cyberduck, Transmit)
This is recommended if you need to upload large quantities to scoopa but do not need automations.
This is more reliable and comfortable then using the web interface in your browser.
Automated, using an intermediate NAS
This is recommended for quickly setting up an automation with moderate use of funds.
You can sync folders on your NAS (for example Synology) to upload any new files to your S3 Bucket.
For Synology DSM we recommend using the built-in „Cloud-Sync“ App.
Automated, directly from your EVS-Network
By using C-Next, EVS can deliver directly to an S3 Bucket. Alternatively you can use X-File to Push to a local NAS, do
File-Renaming and Prefixing and much more.
Any other solution that can connect to S3
Things to consider:
Only video-files are being ingested (extension: mxf, mov, avi, mpg, mpeg, mp4, h264, m4v, wmv, ts)
You can prefix your files with a scoopa folder-id: 12345_ddmmyy_yourfilename.mxf
You can find the folder-id by browsing to your desired scoopa-folder with any web-browser, the id is the last part of the url following „/folder/12345“
It is also possible to ingest directly to the archive (Different, Cheaper Price Point at 0,2€/GB) by prefixing the file with „dta__“ (<- 2 underscores).
So a combination of dta__folder-id_yourfilename.mxf also works.
If you do not prefix the file - it’s also fine. These files will be ingested to the admins mailbox in scoopa so that the admins can move it to the right place.
(this is also the case if a folder-id is provided but cannot be found in scoopa)
Folder structures on your S3-Bucket are NOT supported. Make sure to only upload files to the root of the bucket.
Files in Folders will be ignored.
Incomplete Uploads (Multipart) as well as successful uploads will be purged from the bucket after 24h. So make sure to keep track of your uploads on your end. (for example: the built in „Cloud Sync“ App on Synology NAS does this for you.)
Files with the same size and filename will not be ingested again and ignored by scoopa if they have been previously ingested
