Technical Delivery Requirements

MVault currently accepts high-quality files for deployment in corrections and other systems which meet the following technical specifications.

Feature files need to be 1080p, 20Mbps - 30Mbps, in H.264 AVC Part 10 (AVC1) format, with a single channel of stereo audio only. All files delivered exclusively through AWS S3.

Assets should be placed in a folder named with either a vendor ID, or the film’s common name without capitalization and use of dashes in place of spaces, ex: “title-name”.

IMPORTANT NOTE: do not include spaces, special characters (ex: ! ? & , ' " / ) or non-English letters (ex: ñ, ä, ø) in any file and/or folder name when uploading assets.

Asset names should contain both the vendor ID/common name and asset type separated by an underscore, as seen below.

If vendor IDs are used, the vendor ID MUST be an included metadata field.

An example delivery, with a vendor ID of 78348512 is given below:
