The DICOM Viewer allows you to record video for the selected image viewing window. If you use the View Multiple Series mode (see Section 2.8), then video will be recorded only from the selected window. If you are viewing multiple images in a series at the same time (see Section 2.9), then video will be recorded only for the left bottom image area (highlighted in red in ﬁg. 2.19). The following objects will be recorded:
The following objects will not be recorded:
Video recording will be stopped if:
focus is moved to another window within this tab;

Video recording can be synchronized with playback (see Section 2.13). To start playback when recording a video and stop it after completing a video recording, click on the arrow on the right side of the button, select the Settings... item and in the dialog that opens (ﬁg. 2.20), check the Start playback after recording starts box. If this box is checked then video recording will stop after the playback is stopped.
Chose one for the following options from the Encoder drop-down list:
Auto. The choice of the encoder depends on the number of pixels in the window recorded. If the number of pixels (width × height) is ≤ 9437184, the H264 encoder will be used. For windows with more than 9437184 pixels, the MPEG4 encoder will be used. By default, the encoder is selected automatically;
H264. The encoder is used for recording videos when the number of pixels in the window (width × height) is ≤ 9437184. If the number of pixels in the window is greater, a window suggesting that the MPEG4 encoder should be selected instead will pop up when the user presses "OK";
MPEG4. The encoder may be used for recording videos in the windows of any size, but the resulting video ﬁle will occupy more space on a disc compared to a ﬁle created with the H264 encoder.
To set the frame rate, enter the value into the Frame per second ﬁeld.
