Most ingest settings can be centrally pre-configured on a production level in Limecraft Flow. As soon as Limecraft Edge accesses the production, it will pull its configuration and settings from the production. As such, you ensure overall consistency when operating different instances of Edge. In this article we discuss Ingest Templates or the presets that determine encoding profiles and ingest destinations.

Ingest templates allow you to save and restore frequently used backup and ingest configurations, such as destination paths, file naming configurations, encoding profiles and verification options.

Upon ingest, the user can pick the right transfer settings from a drop menu. The ingest wizard will then automatically select the appropriate configuration for the encoding and transfer settings.
