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 content provider 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 content provider ID/common name and asset type separated by an underscore, as seen below.

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

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