Processing of a Document

As soon as a document is uploaded:

  • Document Processing workflow is initiated for its processing;
  • During processing, the standard windows attributes stored in the file are picked up and added in each of the ContentFiles (renditions) produced. These will then be displayed on the Media Info screen.
  • The document is converted to PDF file format as per its default profile defined in Encoding Profiles which includes details like the size of thumbnail and the output format. To learn more about them, see: Understanding Encoding Profiles .
  • The snapshot of the first page of the document will be used as thumbnail for the document in the portal. This is made customizable for the user as per convenience.
  • Optical Character Recognition is one of the sub-processes that the document is run through which results in editable text extraction from a document with accordance to the page it has been found on. This text is then indexed and added into the timed data through which a document is made searchable.
  • If the uploaded document is protected by a password and user passes that password using API, then such protected documents will be processed as well.
  • After processing, the document will be uploaded to respective storage provider. To learn more about these providers, see: Storage Providers in VIDIZMO.
