iconik Transcoder for iconik Storage Gateway

The iconik Storage Gateway needs in most cases it's own transcoder for generating proxy and other files from your video and audio files. This should be installed when setting up the iconik Storage Gateway.



  • Data - Additional data and options to be sent to the transcoder for advanced usage.
  • Directory for Edit Proxies - This is the directory relative to the root of the storage this transcoder is used on for storing Edit Proxies that are made using the iconik Transcoder.
  • Max Proxy Size - The maximum resolution that we will create proxies in. We will not upscale small content, but larger resolutions will be downsized.
  • Max Proxy Bitrate - The maximum bit rate the encoder should use.
  • Include Patterns - The transcoder will only transcode files which contain the (case-sensitive) pattern from this field. Examples:
    • *exclude* (match file/folder with substring exclude)
    • *.mov (match file/folder that ends on .mov)
    • You can also use regular expressions: re:/^.*\.mov$/ (match file/folder with .mov ending)
  • Exclude Patterns - The transcoder will ignore files which contain the (case-sensitive) pattern from this field.

Advanced Settings

These advanced settings are for conversion from HDR/HLG (High Dynamic Range) to SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) when creating keyframes and poster images to ensure that they are outputted with the appropriate brightness, contrast, saturation and gamma settings to more accurately represent HDR content in a SDR form. These settings will only be applied when creating those images on source material that is using the bt.2020 (Rec. 2020) color space.

  • Tonemap Desaturation - Apply de-saturation for highlights that exceed this level of brightness. The higher the parameter, the more color information will be preserved. This setting helps prevent unnaturally blown-out colors for super-highlights, by (smoothly) turning into white instead. This makes images feel more natural, at the cost of reducing information about out-of-range colors. Value between 0 and 100. Default is set to 0
  • Tonemap Peak - Override signal/nominal/reference peak with this value. Useful when the embedded peak information in display metadata is not reliable or when tone mapping from a lower range to a higher range. Value between 0 and 1000. Default is 100.
  • Brightness - Set the brightness expression. Can be a value between -1 and 1. Default is 0.2
  • Contrast - Set the contrast expression. Can be a value between 0 and 2. Default is 1
  • Saturation - Set the saturation expression. Can be a value between 0 and 10. Default is 0.65
  • Gamma - Set the gamma expression. Can be a value between 0 and 3. Default is 2
