Cinegy Debuts Capture PRO Version 24.1

cinegy capture pro

Cinegy says it has added yet more power and functionality to its real-time ingest application Cinegy Capture PRO. The new release, version 24.1, claims to make multi-format and multi-resolution ingest simpler. Cinegy Capture PRO meets the need for real-time video to be recorded reliably and securely, and at the same time made available across the business as quickly as possible. Multiple engines can be controlled from a common, intuitive user interface, setting up and controlling ingest from SDI, IP (e.g. SRT, MPEG-TS, ST-2110) and NDI. Proxies, multi-resolution and multi-codec productions versions alongside the raw or archive media format can all be created at the same time and stored locally or written to one or multiple remote locations, to avoid any kind of storage failures. Required metadata can be automatically generated and stored to the media asset management system. The enhanced facilities now simplify the management and control of many encoding engines as a gang, accelerating routine operations further.

Reflecting the growing interest in Ultra HD production, Capture PRO version 24.1 fully supports the latest high-density Deltacast SDI ingest cards, allowing more 6G or 12G-SDI UHD/4k video channels to be captured with smaller hardware footprint. Likewise, the new BlackMagic Decklink IP cards are now supported, adding another option to capture SMPTE ST-2110 video.

Users who have standardized on the Avid DNxHR file format will benefit from greatly enhanced features, including full support for MXF Op1A. Capture PRO can also scale inputs down to 720p, and convert 10-bit Ultra HD color to 8-bit, when encoding from full HD or UHD sources. Of course, simulcast encoding of multiple formats is possible here too. This is all done as computationally efficiently as possible.
