Several Cinegy Playout instances can be started on the same machine.

Note
A separate license is used for each Cinegy Playout instance.

With the help of the Cinegy Playout configurator you can add/remove Cinegy Playout instances and configure each of them individually.

The "Cinegy Playout Config" dialog can be launched from Start > Cinegy > Cinegy Playout x64 Config.

When started for the first time, no instance is configured:

playout_Multiinstance_playout

To activate an instance, select any "Free" instance and configure it by pressing the "Configure…​" button and specifying all the necessary parameters. To deactivate the configured instance, select it and press the "Remove" button.

Follow the instructions below to begin configuring a Cinegy Playout instance to work in Cinegy Encode mode:

  1. In the "General" tab, specify the instance name and select the "On start immediately switch to live" option:

    encode_general_cfg

    When this option is enabled, the "Audio matrix templates file" selection becomes available. You can leave this field empty, then each audio input will be mapped to its corresponding audio output as is.

    Tip
    There is a default pre-created audio matrix XML file in the Cinegy Air installation folder. Browse for it and select the audio mixing profile. Custom audio matrix profiles are created via Audio Profile Editor tool.
  2. In the "Licensing" tab, do not select any connection:

    encode_license_cfg
    Caution
    Make sure you have the "Core Engine" license.
