System Recommendations

Cinegize was designed with the express goal of meeting exacting quality capabilities and at the same time having a minimal impact on the host. Using the massively-parallel Daniel2 codec allows ideal optimization running on GPU as well as modern multi-core CPUs with features such as AVX. Since any desktop remoting software is not an end goal alone, keeping the load added by this function as small as possible is a critical benefit of Cinegize.

Software Only

No additional hardware needed – just the power of your graphics card, preferably a recent NVIDIA card. On the client side an integrated graphics card will do.

If you are using an NVIDIA graphics card, we recommend that you optimize its performance by setting the "Prefer maximum performance" value for the "Power management mode" parameter in the NVIDIA Control Panel.
Daniel2 GPU encoding and decoding are supported by NVIDIA video boards that have CUDA Compute Capability 3.5 and higher. If the NVIDIA video board has the CUDA Compute Capability of an earlier version, then use Daniel2 CPU encoding and decoding.
The minimal supported NVIDIA driver version is 456.81.
Please perform the process of NVIDIA drivers update only upon stopping Cinegy applications. For detailed instructions on installing NVIDIA driver, please refer to the NVIDIA Drivers installation article.

The required hardware largely depends on the video resolution to be played back at each machine running Cinegy Cinegize.

Video is transmitted with light-weight compression including rapid error recovery, offering a bandwidth efficiency of up to 20:1 compared to uncompressed. Cinegize requires a cabled LAN connection between sender and receiver with minimal network packet loss, operating at 1Gbps speed for up to UHD60 4:4:4 mode.

8K (7680x4320) resolutions at high quality mode require 5Gbps or higher network speeds.

Cinegize utilizes the GPU to compress or decompress in real time the video output where it is created, thus offloading the CPU.

The minimum requirements to install and/or run are Windows 10 64-bit (Enterprise, Home or Pro), 4GB of RAM, suitable CPU (dependent upon the host resolution and quality intended for transmission), and preferably a recent NVIDIA graphics card, which can be used to offload the encoding or decoding using NVIDIA’s CUDA.

Users of NVIDIA Quadro GPUs can benefit from the NVIDIA Capture SDK (NVFBC) features available, allowing a further reduced host PC load.

Cinegize runs also without GPU acceleration creating minimum CPU load.


Cinegize is currently an early beta version, and access is currently provided at no cost pending release. This release is not meant for production use but only for evaluation and demonstration purposes.

No Damage

Cinegy refuses any responsibility for any damages resulting from the use of Cinegize. For the avoidance of any doubt: Cinegy refuses any liability for any damage resulting out of the use of its Cinegize beta software.
