Cinegy, a developer of world-leading media software solutions for automation, playout, production workflow and archive, has announced the launch of a new edition of Cinegy Capture Express in response to the release of the BlackMagic Decklink Quad SDI card.
Combining the new Cinegy Capture BlackMagic edition along with the BlackMagic Decklink Quad SDI card now provides the broadcast industry with a revolutionary solution to encode up to four simultaneous XDCAM HD 422 streams at an affordable price.
Welcoming the arrival of such cost-effective cards to the broadcast market, Cinegy have reacted by producing a new BlackMagic edition at an equally great value of just $995. Using the world-leading Cinegy Cinecoder MPEG2 encoder, all four of the new BMD Quad HD-SDI inputs can be used to create XDCAM HD 422 compatible MXF files for use in Avid, Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere.
Jan Weigner, President of Cinegy LLC, comments from the NAB 2011 show floor, BlackMagic are really pushing the market, but there is a gap left the industry needs something to produce standardised compressed files. Cinegy can fill that gap. With our software-based ingest and encoding technology, we can deliver that solution.
Cinegy Capture uses the latest service-oriented architectural principles, to allow Cinegy Capture to be used as flexibly as possible using open web services by systems integrators and customers. Cinegy are also working closely with AMWA and EBU to make sure that Cinegy Capture is one of the first Cinegy products to adhere to the emerging Framework for Interoperable Media Services [FIMS] standards, designed to make it simpler for broadcasters to deploy and maintain complex systems. Using these principles, coupled with the advances made in modern computing power, this software-based platform can support both pre-existing ingest scenarios as well as offer support for a whole new set of uses, from OEM integration through to OB truck recording.
