Creating a Channel

There are three ways to create a channel:

  • From scratch. Many fields contain values, but they are the system defaults. You must provide details about inputs, about the number of outputs and their destinations, about the number of outputs, and about the number of encodes.

  • Using a template. Many fields contain values that are specific to that template and different from the system defaults. You must provide details about inputs, about the number of outputs and their destinations, about the number of outputs, and about the number of encodes. Many fields contain values, but they are the system defaults.

  • By cloning an existing channel. You inherit all the information from the existing channel and can change as much as you want. You must change some fields, to ensure uniqueness.
