Processing Queue - New Generation Capture

  • Updated

Processing Queue

The processing queue in a Capture Visual Media Management system refers to a dedicated area where users can monitor and manage the processing of the assets within the system. It provides visibility into the status of various processing tasks that are being performed on the sets or assets.



The processing queue provides a funnel view of the processes that are being carried out by the system:



Overview gives a general view on the activities that are being carried out by the system. This is a default view enabling the users to get a general indication on how the system is processing the assets.




Inspect View

The inspect view allows the users to click into the individual rows and retrieve a more detailed view of the same job.



Asset View

Asset View provides an option to review individual assets of the specific processing activity. This can be achieved by clicking on the View button.




The processing queue section provides an overview of the tasks that are currently in progress or queued for processing. It displays information such as the asset name, task type, status (e.g., queued, in progress, completed), and any associated details or metadata.

Provides the total amount of assets that have been processed by the system. This includes digital assets, releases and any related documentation.



Users can monitor the progress of individual tasks within the processing queue. This includes information and the percentage of the completion.


The following statuses are available in the system:

  • Queued - the task is pending processing.
  • Failed - the processing has been initiated, but has been unsuccessful.
  • Completed - the processing has been initiated and has been successful.
  • Cancelled - the processing has been cancelled and can not be resumed.
  • Paused - the processing has been paused and can be resumed.

When the assets are being processed you have an option to manage individual processing tasks. Users can pause, resume or cancel the tasks as needed. This level of control allows users to make adjustments based on changing priorities or requirements.


If any errors occur during the processing of tasks, status section provides an alert. This helps identify and resolve any failures, allowing users to take appropriate actions, such as retrying failed tasks or investigating the cause of the error.


When assets are in progress the users have the ability to do undertake the following actions


Left to right:

  • Restart - restart the session that has failed or has been paused.
  • Pause - pause an active session, this can be restarted when needed.
  • Cancel - cancel an active session, this can not be restarted when needed.



The duration refers to the elapsed time for a particular processing task. It provides information about how long the task has been running or how much time it took to complete the task. It helps users understand the time it takes for assets to undergo processing, which can be useful for monitoring efficiency, identifying bottlenecks, and estimating processing times for future tasks.




The priority allows users to prioritise the order in which the tasks are being processed. Users can adjust the order of the tasks based on their importance, urgency, or specific requirements. This ensures efficient utilisation of the system's resources and enables users to meet their desired processing deadlines.




Expand / Collapse

The user has also an option to expand/collapse all the rows on the screen at the same time by clicking the expand/collapse icon.




The View button allows users to access Asset View and review assets associated with a particular activity. Clicking on the button the user opens a preview page. There the user can review the set, it also enables verification of the processing tasks, to ensure a successful completion or provides information and ability to make further adjustments if any are required.



Download button enabled users to download a report of the specific process or a task. Clicking on the download button generates a report. Once the download is complete, you can access the file in your designated location on your device. The file will be presented in a .cvs format.



Filters on the Processing Queue page allows the user to refine and narrow down their search based on specific criteria.




By using a filter, the user can streamline the processing queue management and quickly access the preferred sets within the page. Filters help focus on specific subsets of processing jobs, enabling efficient browsing, searching, and retrieval.


How to use filters

Click on the filter icon to prompt the filter form.

This will give you the ability to:

  • Search for Activity

or filter by:

  • Select User / Queued by
  • Status
  • Outcome

Once you have made your selection apply it to the asset library. This action will instruct your system to display only the processes that match the criteria.


To clear the search, remove the filter term and click on the apply button once again.
