NVIDIA GPUs - beginning with the Kepler generation - contain a HARDWARE-BASED ENCODER (REFERRED TO AS NVENC) which provides fully-accelerated hardware-based video encoding and is independent of graphics performance. With complete encoding (which is comput...
Cinegy TS Analyzer is a lightweight tool, which can be useful to analyze an incoming live stream when you experience RTP skips, for example. The tool itself and details on its use are available on the Cinegy github: https://github.com/Cinegy/TsAnalyser [h...
In order to add new storage that should be used only when specified explicitly in watch folder settings the following steps should be performed: - register network shares that refer to the new storage in Cinegy Archive; - create a new Media Group that...
The Cinegy Archive master clip itself does not allow the replacement or addition of media tracks. Although it is possible to generate a new copy of the media with the required tracks layout. The recommended way of new master clip versions generation is ...
GPU offloading (hardware acceleration) is available for Daniel2 4:2:2 formats. Other formats are CPU based. Cinegy recommends using the following bitrates for Daniel2 format: - UHD p50 4:2:0 8 bit: 600 Mbit/sec - UHD p50 4:2:0 10 bit: 800 Mbit/sec -...
Export of sequences from Cinegy Desktop with the help of Direct Transcoding is not supported. The sequence can contain clips with different types of compression, as well as objects such as Titler, effects, etc. Therefore, the Direct Transcoding mode is on...
BlackMagic design Decklink BMDL Duo2 and Quad2* cards have specific architecture. These cards have "4/8 independent 3G-SDI connections". That does not mean that they have 4/8 independent 3G-SDI full duplex channels, but just 4/8 connectors which can be co...
A new, top-tier loudness control options has been integrated since Cinegy Air 12. This paid-for extra option provides every possible real-time loudness control that a customer might need. To use Loudness Control feature a special license should be provide...
The difference between presets is the level to which the video is compressed, and correspondingly, the different level of hardware consumption. For the 'Best performance' preset, the video is compressed by the MPEG-2 codec to a lower bitrate, so the hardw...
NVIDIA GPUs contain a HARDWARE-BASED DECODER (referred to as NVDEC) which provides fully-accelerated hardware-based video decoding for several popular codecs. With complete decoding offloaded to NVDEC the graphics engine and the CPU are free for other ope...
What to do if the UTC time codes in the Air as-run logs do not represent the local time when the playout occurred? Cinegy chose to move to UTC because it fixed a lot of issues to do with daylight saving, etc. Date/time of the event is now stored accordi...
No, capturing directly to the network storage is the standard way to use Capture with Cinegy Archive. It also has additional stability protection against the short-term network disconnection, so there is no need for a local copy when network conditions ...
Cinegy Archive database doesn't require any special procedures for maintaining, just use the basic regular recommendation as for all Microsoft SQL databases, according to their documentation. Refer to the Microdoft support site for more details about cl...
Code = 0x80004005 could indicate that there is some hardware/driver related problem: - selected SDI card is absent (additional information returns); - SDI driver is wrong (sometimes additional version related information returns); - the license is absent ...
Playout Engine supports various types of input signal which can be used as a Live item source. SCENARIO 1. ONLY RTP/UDP/SRT INPUT IS CONFIGURED To set up the RTP/UDP/SRT input signal a separate tab is used in Playout configurator. In order to use th...
For sound normalizing you can use normalizer in Cinegy Air. To send audio from sequence to external software and back to sequence after correcting it, you can export only audio track to WAV from the sequence, edit, re-ingest and add it to the sequence as ...
Daniel is loss-less codec. It is primarily aimed at providing a reliable, scalable and performance optimized codec for the use of video with alpha channel. Common usage includes animations rendered with alpha channel, to be superimposed on live picture or...
The solution for the customer who wants to record the signal to the on-air automatically in a file is to use Cinegy Capture with SharedRAM to exchange the frames - Secondary Events may start/stop the recording. However, you need to have an extra license f...
The pre-process allows you to upscale/downscale and change framerate on Output for selected source video. For example if you have 1920X1080i on input SDI and select RTP Output with pre-process 720X576 25P you get this video format on Output RTP stream. ...
Actually Cinegy Capture is not designed to provide an SDI output. But if you need an SDI output you may use the Cinegy Playout or Cinegy Encode which can get the Shared RAM preview from Capture and send it to SDI output. Firstly you need to configure th...
The Queue Size option defines the maximum video buffer size on the playout server. It is being set up on the Playback tab of Playout configuration: The Queue Size is specified in frames. As a pre-read buffer, it holds frames to be output that are re...
Timecode measures time in Hours:Minutes:Seconds:Fractions-of-seconds called frames. However, in NTSC video, a frame is not an even fraction of a second. Thus, NTSC timecode is always subtly off from real time--by exactly 1.8 frames per minute. Drop-fram...
The ":" and ";" are very classic and common indication for NDF (Non-drop frame) and DF (drop frame) timecode calculation types. PAL framerates are always calculated as Non-drop frames, but NTSC framerates could be DF or NDF. While non-drop timecode is...
1. In case the text is provided in Unicode, please, select any Unicode font to render it. 2. In case the text is ANSI, please use 3rd party converter to Unicode format.
In some cases users employ Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) client software to connect to another computer over a network connection while the other computer runs Cinegy software. RDP client processes the received commands and displays images using its gra...
Cinegy suggests a good solution that will make Cinegy Multiviewer output its grid over SDI as easily as it does over IP or NDI. To have an SDI output option, the only thing you need is Cinegy Multiviewer and Cinegy Encode - a Cinegy Playout which acts as ...
_NOTE: The drivers should be downloaded and installed before use. The plugged device should be properly recognized in system._ Cinegy Prompter can be controlled by external devices: remote controllers that emulate keyboard shortcuts and game controllers...
This Windows issue was first traced in Windows 8 64-bit machines and on Windows Server 2012 network drives were not populating within Microsoft Deployment Toolkit>New application>Browse. This may happen on Windows 10 also. It happens when you use programs...
It is not possible to control grafics separately on several Air engines - with CG you are controlling all properly configured and connected servers simultaneously. It's typically used when you need to run same templates on multiple engines. You can howe...
The Cinegy Playout engine generates the playout preview and cued preview feedback streams for control applications such as the Cinegy Air control and Cinegy Studio control. Since Cinegy Air v21 the playout engine generates the feedback stream using SRT ...
