In order to start creating schedule with Cinegy Capture Planner Manager, a number of settings should be configured as described in this article.

Configuring Engines

Cinegy Capture Manager runs individual services for specific recordings:

Cinegy_Capture_Manager

Capture Services are represented in Cinegy Capture Planner Manager on the "Engines" tab. By default six Engines are added:

Planner_Engines_tab

To view the current status of Engines, press the "Refresh" button. The "Status" column indicates the Engine status in the following colors:

Engine_status_green – Engine is ready, Cinegy Capture Service is started and running.

Engine_status_orange – Engine is busy, i.e. processing a recording.

Engine_status_gray – Engine is offline, meaning it has wrong URL or Cinegy Capture Service is not started.

Engine_status_white – Engine is not verified.

Adding Engines

To add a new Engine, press the "+Add new engine" button and enter the required Engine details – its name and URL:

Editing Engines

To edit a particular Engine, press the corresponding Engine_edit_buttonbutton:

Virtual Engines

Virtual Engines can be used to organize multiple Engines into virtual groups for simultaneous capture recordings processing.

Go to the "Virtual Engines" tab:

Planner_Virtual_Engines_tab

By default three Virtual Engines are configured to contain two Engines in each. To reorganize Engines within Virtual Engines, use the list builder on top. The field on the left shows the selected "Source Virtual Engine" from which Engine(s) can be moved to the Virtual Engine selected in the "Destination Virtual Engine" drop-down list. Use the arrow buttons or drag-and-drop to move the selected Engines between the lists. "Free Engines" stands for the temporary container for reorganizing Engines between Virtual Engines.

Use the buttons below to add, delete or rename Virtual Engines:

Planner_Virtual_Engines_management

The "Active Directory Groups" panel on the left shows all user groups present in the active directory. Click a user group to display its description:

Planner_active_directory_group_description

The user groups authorized to have access to the Cinegy Capture Planner configuration are displayed on the right in the "Used Groups" list. There are three types of policy privileges:

  • Admin – provides full access to the Cinegy Capture Planner configuration and management on the website.
