Release Notes

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.

Any feedback or problems should be reported via the Cinegy support e-mail address.
