Live Switch Events
Reading time ~2 minutes
An event can be configured to run on the Cinegy Playout engine startup in Cinegy Encode mode. Cinegy Encode can handle all types of secondary events. For example, this could be a channel logo, added as basic overlay or Cinegy Titler graphics.
To add a secondary event, for example, to overlay Cinegy Titler graphics on the live feed immediately on its start, the Cinegy Titler templates rendering should be enabled and Live switch events should be configured. You will also need a template previously created via the Cinegy Titler application.
