Release Notes

The Cinegy Capture bundle comprises the following components:

Cinegy Capture Manager which is installed with Cinegy Capture Server and is responsible for performing the core functions of recording, encoding, as well as controlling and reacting to devices; it performs all the stages of the Cinegy Capture engines management.

Cinegy Capture Archive Adapter is controlled from Cinegy Capture Manager and allows user to integrate Cinegy Capture with Cinegy Archive for direct ingest into centralized asset management systems.

Cinegy Capture Control connects to the 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 is a scalable panel that 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 v22.12 is the next major release of the Cinegy Capture family, which includes new useful features and important fixes.

Caution
Cinegy Capture version 22.12 supports the latest NVIDIA boards which require new NVIDIA drivers and a new SDK to be utilized. For that reason, we highly recommend using the minimum NVIDIA driver version 452.39 with Cinegy Capture v22.12. Until other Cinegy software products, such as Cinegy Air and Cinegy Multiviewer, are updated to utilize the new NVIDIA SDK, we recommend that customers avoid running them on the same machine as Cinegy Capture, if possible. Before starting any upgrades, please make sure that the OS under which you are running Cinegy Capture and a model of the NVIDIA board you are using are supported in the version of the NVIDIA driver you choose.
Caution
Make sure that the GPU card selected as video accelerator in Cinegy Capture Manager supports interlace field coding; otherwise, interlaced encoding processing will fail even if an appropriate GPU device is selected for the video encoder.
Caution
Windows Server 2022 is not yet qualified for use with Cinegy Capture.
