    Virtual Media Server Supported Formats

    The Pixel Mapping feature, introduced in version 1.9.5 for the Eos family of consoles (except Element), supports the following file formats:

    • Images
      • .png, .jpg, .gif, .tiff, and .svg
    • Movies
      • Any format that QuickTime® supports (.3gp .3gpp .3gpp2 .3gp2 .3g2 .3p2 .flc .h264, .hdmov .m4a .m4b .m4p .moo .moov .mov .movie .mp4 .mpg4 .mpg4 .mqv .mv4 .pic .pict .qif .qt .qti .qtif .tvod .vid)
    • Text
      • .txt
    • HTML
      • .htm, .html

    File Names

    File names for media content need to follow the naming convention of file number_filename. For example, 002_Volcano.mov is a file name that would be recognized. When importing by using the file manager, you need to number the files prior to importing. However, using Import All Pixel Map Media allows you to specify the library and file numbers, and the console will autonumber the file names as needed during the import process.

    Each file in a pixel map library (folder) needs to have a unique number prefix (000-255). Multiple files should not share the same prefix (001_) if they are in the same library.
