This document explains how to install and configure the SideCAR RTS VLink Ingest Service.
The first step is to install the Windows service by unzipping the package and running the included installer. Once installed, the settings can be accessed using the associated .exe.config file. The settings are explained below:
The licensing GUID is used to ensure the service is properly licensed on your machine. You should obtain the Licensing GUID from Summit Technology Group by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The number of milliseconds used as the main scan timer interval. Default is 10000.
The directory where the raw files from VLink are written and where this service will scan for new files. The default directory is 'C:\Program Files\RTS\VLINK Virtual Matrix\Recordings'
Reserved for future use.
The directory to place the WAV and XML file pairs (in Legacy SideCAR). Directory should be mapped to the Virtual Directory in IIS on the host machine.
The file mask for incoming files (in ScanDir). Default is '*.wav'. VLink will work with MP3 as well but VLink Ingest Service does not convert to wav.
Specified the default encoding for the resulting XML file. Default is 'DEFAULT' resulting in the system default encoding. UNICODE and ASCII options available.
Specify the number of days for newly resulting files. Used for data retention policies in SideCAR. Default is '30' (days).
Specifies the true/false semaphore of the audio for transcription. Default is 'False'.
Once the settings are set, set the service to Auto and start the service. Refer to this whitepaper to configure RTS VLink audio recording.
