This seems VERY random. 003IJ, 005GT, 007TI…etc. Is there ANY rhyme or reason to this? What is to stop two cameras from assigning the same name to a clip? We have two HVX-200s as B and C cameras, and while it hasn’t happened yet, after 2000+ clip names, we might be running out of options.
No, the naming convention is such that you could have 40 cameras out on the street for a year and ingest all of the footage into a server and none would have a repeat file name.
>Is there any meaning to these clips? Just curious more than anything.
It is the randomness of it that is the plan. You can set up a user clip name thing via the SD card that is beyond the Universal clip name, but the odd number/letter combo is just for the fact that you can immmediately ingest and not worry about duplicate file names.

Hey cool. Tell Jim I said hello. Hope all is going well. We are looking for unique application stories, so any time you cays are ready, we would love to write about what you are doing.
