The Record Media tab acts as the main access point for organization on the ZATO CONNECT. Here, you'll find the Codec, File Name, and Media Info sub-menus.
Codec Format details the codec type you're recording in. Presently, only H.264 recording in an MP4 container is available.
Tapping on Compression allows users to cycle through the different record quality options when the ZATO is in its recording mode and not streaming to a platform like YouTube or Twitch. For regular recording, there are 4 compression variants.
LQ: ~5 Mb/s
MQ: ~12 Mb/s
HQ: ~50 Mb/s
XQ: ~80 Mb/s (All-I)
Note: If the ZATO is streaming to YouTube, Twitch, or Facebook Live, it will display H.264 ST here. This indicates that it's recording the backup at the same bit rate used by the RTMP streaming output.
Record Format highlights the input signal properties, and Color Format displays the color properties of the recorded file. Presently the ZATO is limited to recording in 8-Bit, 4:2:0 only.
This is where you can adjust the naming of the files you're going to record with the ZATO CONNECT.
At the top, File Name previews the naming of the file that would be used if you'd press the record button right now.
Under Unit Name, you can personalize the name of your device by entering a new one via the keyboard.
The Date and Time fields are fetched from what you've entered in the Date & Time tab, that can be found in the General menu.
In this menu, you find out how much time remains for recording in the previously selected H.264 compression variant.
Below that, there's a chart displaying the amount of space currently used on the inserted SD Card (displayed in green), as well as the available storage space (displayed in gray).
On the right, the name of the SD Card is displayed, and right below it, there's a Format Button. Pressing the Format button brings up a prompt, asking if you really want to format your SD Card, as this action cannot be undone.
