Cinegy Capture PRO is a centralized multi-channel, scalable and cost effective ingest tool using many of the industry-leading components developed for and used by other Cinegy products. Cinegy Capture PRO reinvents the acquisition and transcode process, unifying the material recording and generating edit or web proxies. Cinegy Capture PRO supports many popular industrial codecs and file formats, including ProRes 422, XDCAM HD 422, Avid DNxHD, High-Profile H.264, MXF, MOV, etc.

The power of Cinegy Capture PRO allows users to turn any PC or server with a supported SDI video card into a network-based ingest appliance that can be used from any PC connected to the same network. The new multicam control panel enables customers to use Cinegy Capture PRO as the multicam ingest tool for the synchronous multichannel recording from live studios, in OB vans and at on-site events. Cinegy Capture PRO is a fully "video over IP" compliant and supports RTP/UDP transport streams along with the SDI-based video source.

Cinegy Capture structure

Each Control can be connected to any number of Capture Agents to work with multiple servers simultaneously. Cinegy Capture Agent works with the overall Capture server. It is responsible for gathering the Engine status information and the Engine service manipulation (enumerating, starting, stopping the services).

Having acquired all the necessary information, Cinegy Capture Control connects to Cinegy Capture Engine(s). Each Capture Engine is responsible for receiving streamed data and its encoding.

Cinegy Capture Planner is responsible for automated jobs processing according to the schedule. It can work with multiple servers simultaneously.

Cinegy Capture Web Control provides remote control of capturing via a web-hosted application from a standard PC or a mobile gadget running on any operational system.

Cinegy Capture Manager performs all the stages of the Engines management.
