Configure_engine_instance_RTP_input

Select the "Enable RTP/UDP input" option to automatically use the IP signal as the live feed for the Cinegy Playout when the RTP/UDP live item is detected in the playlist.

The following diagram shows the corresponding configuration:

IP_live_signal

In this configuration, the "Enable RTP/UDP input" option should be selected.

Note
In case when input device is not defined, the RTP/UDP input can be used for all the live items. Alternatively, the black frame is broadcast for the live item instead.

Select the "Listen for SCTE35 cueing stream" option to enable listening for SCTE 35 packets for working with automatic opt-out blocks.

Important
Refer to the Automatic Opt-Out paragraph of the Cinegy Air Manual for the detailed description on how to work with automatic opt-out blocks.

For both options configure the following settings:

  • Source url – enter the RTP or UDP URL describing the source channel to be used as the live input.

    Note
    The source URL defines the default live stream only. This can be dynamically changed by selecting the "Item properties…​" command from the live item context menu and switching to the "Parameters" tab in Cinegy Air.
  • Multicast interface – use the drop-down list to define the adapters that will be used to get the stream. Select the "All" option to use all adapters; otherwise choose a local machine’s IP address, which may be useful when you need to divide the multicasting subnet from the working subnet.

    Important
    You can manually assign the RTP or UDP input stream for the existing live item or use the Cinegy channel browser in order to insert the available IP streams from the Route Directory Server to the playlist. Refer to the Cinegy Gateway Manual for details.
  • Out of network offset – set the value in range from -10000 to 10000 milliseconds to define the offset for an automatic opt-out block.

  • In network offset – set the value in range from -10000 to 10000 milliseconds to define the offset for a live event following an automatic opt-out block.

Troubleshooting

If you cannot connect remotely to a Cinegy Playout engine when it is running, please make sure that:

  • the Cinegy Playout application is started using the "Run as Administrator" option from the context menu;

  • Windows Firewall is not blocking the inbound traffic on the 5321 TCP port for the PlayoutExApp.exe application.

In order to see the live feedback from remote Cinegy Playout in the Cinegy Air or Cinegy Studio control applications, or let Cinegy Playout receive RTP streams, please make sure your Windows Firewall allows incoming UDP connections on all ports.
