Important
For the list of supported video boards refer to Cinegy Air System Recommendations.

Screen Output

Output_device_DirectShow

Here define the following settings:

  • Output video to the screen – select the checkbox for the video to be put out to the screen.

  • Start in fullscreen – select the checkbox for the video to be put out in full-screen mode.

  • Monitor to use – choose the required monitor to be used from the drop-down list.

  • Audio device – choose the corresponding output audio device from the drop-down list.

identify_displays

Press the "Identify displays" button to detect and identify the additional monitor connected.

Note
The "Monitor to use" and "Audio device" lists depend on the hardware installed on the current PC.
Note
If the "Output video to the screen" option is unchecked, only audio will be broadcast without video (over the radio stations, for example).

DVS Output

DVS_output_settings

Here define the board number from 0 to 9 and the channel mode. Press the "Finish" button to set the DVS output device.

Caution
To assure proper work with the DVS board, all Cinegy modules should have access to the dvsoem.dll file. Check the DVS driver package that you have installed on your computer and add the path to the folder containing dvsoem.dll. To do this, go to "My Computer" > "Properties" > "Advanced" > "Environment Variables" and edit the variable value for the "Path" variable.
decklink_output

Here define the board number from 0 to 7 and press "Finish" to set the Decklink output device.

AJA Output

AJA_output

The following AJA output settings can be configured here:

  • Board number – define the board number from 0 to 7.

  • Channel number – use the drop-down list to select the channel number.

  • Analog output format – choose the appropriate analog video output format from the drop-down list for the analog video output signal.

  • Reference source – define the reference source for the AJA output device by choosing between Reference Input, SDI Input or Free Run from the drop-down list.

  • UHD mode – select the required UHD SDI mapping mode by choosing between Quadrant or 2SI options from the drop-down list.

    Important
    Only multichannel 3G boards are supported for UHD SDI mapping modes.
    Note
    Please note that using double-rate (p50 and p60) UHD formats requires four cables a(4x 3G) for both modes. For single-rate (p25 and p30) UHD formats four cables (4x 1,5G) are needed in Quad-link SDI - Square Division mode, whereas in 2SI mode two cables (2x 3G) are needed.
    Note
    Selecting UHD2160 TV format for 8-channel boards (DELTA-3G-elp-d 8c and Corvid88) is always subdivided for two UHD channels (0 and 1) in both SDI UHD mapping modes, even if single-rate (p25 and p30) UHD formats are used (2 connectors on each channels are free) the rest of connectors are not usable. It is possible to mix different SDI UHD mapping modes within one card (for example use Corvid88 or DELTA-3G-elp-d 8c) as UHD Quad Link SDI input device and UHD 2SI SDI output device simultaneously.

Press "Finish" to complete the setup and assign AJA as the output device for the current channel.

    This setting is only topical for the new generation versatile Deltacast cards that support channels direction configuration.
  • Reference source – choose the reference source for the Deltacast output device from the drop-down list.

  • UHD mode – select the required UHD SDI mapping mode by choosing between Quadrant or 2SI options presented in the drop-down list.

RTP/UDP Output

Selecting the RTP/UDP output as the output device sets the SDI – RTP converter configuration.

Network Settings

The following RTP/UDP output network settings should be configured here:

RTP_UDP_output_network_settings
  • Broadcast mode – here choose the broadcast transmission method (unicast or multicast).

  • IP address – in the unicast mode, enter the destination station address and port. In the multicast mode, enter the IP and port of the multicast group that will be used for multicasting.

  • Stream – here choose the stream protocol type (RTP or UDP).

  • TS packets – specify the number of transport stream packets placed in the payload portion of the RTP/UDP packet.

    Important
    Refer to the network technical documentation for more information on the RTP and UDP packets.
  • Multicast source IP master – here choose the IP address of the local network adapter to be used for multicasting.

  • Multicast source IP backup – here choose the IP address of the local network adapter to be used for multicasting instead of the master IP.

    Note
    It is recommended to set up the static IP address for this adapter. The "Multicast source IP master" and "Multicast source IP backup" parameters affect the multicast mode only.
  • TTL – here define the number of routers (hops) that multicast traffic is permitted to pass through before expiring on the network.

    Note
    The "TTL" parameter affects the multicast mode only.
    Important
    Refer to the network technical documentation for more information on the TTL option.
  • Register output – this option allows you to register the output stream on the Cinegy Route Directory Server in order to be used by other Cinegy IP-based broadcast components as an RTP/UDP input. In this case, enter the Route Directory Server IP and output stream ID (as stream name).

    Note
    No special symbols can be used for the stream ID, alphanumeric only and space symbol are allowed.
    Note
    The "Register output" parameter affects the multicast mode only.

Press the "Next" button to continue RTP/UDP output configuration.

  • Video bitrate – define the bitrate value used for compression.

  • Rate mode – choose either VBR (variable bitrate) or CBR (constant bitrate) mode by selecting the corresponding option from the drop-down list.

  • Chroma format – define the color space (4:2:0 or 4:2:2) by selecting the corresponding option from the drop-down list.

  • GOP – choose the Group of Picture (GOP) structure of the resulting stream from the drop-down list and define the GOP length in frames.

  • Adaptive GOP – select this option to allow GOP to be of variable length.

  • Interlace coding mode – define the frame-coding rule (frame or field) in the current stream by selecting the corresponding option from the drop-down list.

  • H.264 entropy coding mode – define the coding mode for the H.264 video encoder by selecting the corresponding option from the drop-down list.

  • Coding window – define decoder buffer delay that allows optimizing the quality parameters for coding the GOP. Increasing the delay value improves the quality.

Note
Some parameters may vary or be locked depending on the selected video encoder.

Having configured the encoding settings, press the "Next" button to continue RTP/UDP output configuration.

Audio Settings

RTP_UDP_output_audio_settings

By default, this dialog contains the "S0" audio source of the MPEG Layer II audio type with the 384 kbit/s bit rate. You can edit it according to your needs by selecting a different audio source number, type and bit rate from the corresponding drop-down lists. You can also change PID of the current audio source and specify the three-letter ISO code of the language to be added to the stream via the keyboard in the corresponding fields.

Note
If you select the audio type that already contains bit rate in its name, the corresponding field in the "Bit Rate" column will be disabled.

To add another audio source, press the "Add" button and edit its parameters in the table as described above. Use the "Delete" button to remove an audio source from the list.

shared_ram_output_settings
  • Output name – define the name for your output device via the keyboard.

  • Global namespace – check the option to enable sharing between several users on the machine, or between applications and services.

Note
If the "Global namespace" option is selected, the engine should be started using the "Run as administrator" command; otherwise the engine will not start.
