Default Importing Home Movies

I have just ordered my first K System for our house that is being constructed. I am new to K Systems and am extremely excited to get my hands on my system. I will have 3U Server and 2 M700 Vaults.

My question is that I have a ton of home video's on my computer, the majority as .MTS files and others as .mov - I was wondering if there was any way that I could import them into the Server. I figured the files would have to be ona DVD or BR and likely not burned as data discs.

I could not find any info w/ searches. It may not be possible, but I would LOVE to have my home movies also on the system.

Hi. Yes you will have to burn the home movies to DVD then import to your server. This is also what I did. Then you have to go into the k interface from your pc and enter the title and actor/ director info if you want this info displayed.

Right- you have to make sure the files are encoded to the proper HD (BR) or SD (DVD) spec (most DVD/ BR burning software will do this for you) and then you need to author the disc. Because burning can take a little time (especially BR) I prefer to save my authored file to a "disc image" and then burn it from there. This way if theres a defect in the media, I don't have to reencode everything- which can be time consuming. PS- Congratulations on your new K system- its a terrific system!!
Best regards,
