MeSH ID: D014741
The storing or preserving of video signals to be played back later via a transmitter or receiver.
Best practice for sharing this type of data:
Video should be preserved in a MXF container format, with uncompressed YCbCr or JPEG2000 lossless encoding (codecs). A 640:480 resolution is preferred, with a 4:4:4 sampling scheme, 30 bit sampling scheme, progressive scanning and a 30 MBps data rate. An alternative minimum is Audio Video Interleave [AVI] or QuickTime [MOV] container format with H.264/MPEG-4 AVC or DV encoding (codecs).
Most suitable repositories:
Many repositories host video recordings; some are field or discipline specific, while others are more general. As well, your institution, journal, or funder may recommend specific repositories, otherwise data can be added to any repository able to host generic file types, detailed here.
Best practice for indicating re-use of existing data:
For public datasets please provide a DOI or other stable identified for the dataset itself *and* include a citation for the dataset in the reference list. Be sure to indicate exactly which data has been re-used, particularly when multiple versions of the dataset exist. In many cases, this is best achieved by sharing the code used to extract the part of the data that you analyzed. In some cases it may be best to share the exact dataset(s) you analyzed as well.
For access-controlled data authors should provide a link to instructions for obtaining access (e.g. here is the information page for ADNI (Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative): http://adni.loni.usc.edu/data-samples/access-data/).
When re-using a private dataset from a previous study please contact the data owners to discuss how the data can be made public.
