Upload Tab
Arbitrator SI supports multiple methods of file extraction. The preferred method is for the mobile system to
automatically upload the files to the CMS Video Management System through a network connection. If
automatic upload is not a viable option, the system can be configured for Manual Upload.

their PC or they can burn a CD/DVD with the files directly from the SI. These features require a password to log
in or a USB key with “wadmin” file to authenticate Admin access.
A) Buffer-Files are buffered to an upload directory on the local machine before being pushed across the
network. The Status Bar lets the administrator know the progression of the buffering process.
B) Export-Administrators can export files in their native format to a location on the local system. Note: This
feature is password protected.
C) Burn CD/DVD-Files that cannot be uploaded to the CMS Video Management System can be burned to a CD or
DVD directly from the vehicle.
•
