If you are using a video unit that supports edge recording, you must insert a memory card into your video unit before you can record and store video directly on your video unit.

Before you begin

Make sure that you have a video unit that supports edge recording.

What you should know

A camera that is connected to a single-channel input video encoder that supports edge recording uses the storage device on the video encoder. As a result, if you insert a memory card into a single-channel input video encoder, recordings from the connected camera are stored on the encoder's memory card.


  1. If your memory card is locked, unlock it. You cannot record video onto a memory card that is locked.
  2. Locate your video unit’s card slot and insert the memory card into the slot.
    IMPORTANT: For information about inserting and removing memory cards, always refer to the product documentation that is provided by your video unit manufacturer.
  3. If the video unit has not been added to Stratocast™, add the video unit. If the video unit has already been added, go to the next step.
  4. Click Clients and then, from the Number of devices column, click the client account that the video unit is added to.
  5. On the client's Devices page, click the camera that you inserted the memory card into. If you have difficulty finding the camera, you can search for it by using the Search box.
    In the Edge recording status field, No memory card detected is displayed.
  6. Click Restart camera and wait at least three minutes.
    The State field changes to Restarting camera and then to Enrolled once the camera has restarted.
  7. After at least three minutes have passed, refresh the Devices page.
    In the Edge recording status field, Ready is displayed.
