This tab allows you to configure the output settings for the channels to be monitored.
There are two output modes in Cinegy Multiviewer:
- Window output – the mode in which a frame is formed from the data of all the incoming RTP streams and is played in the Cinegy Multiviewer window.
- RTP output – the mode in which a render of the incoming streams (or layout) is sent out as an RTP/UDP stream itself for playback from any accessible locations on the network.
It is possible to add/remove the selected output mode configuration by pressing the "plus" and "minus" buttons. If the Window output configuration is not present, while adding a new output configuration you will be suggested to choose the Window or RTP mode:
The newly added RTP outputs have the default names "RTP output (1)", "RTP output (2)" and so on, which can further be edited.
Window Output Settings
Select the "Window Output" option from the left hand list:
Here use the pull-down list to choose the PC display on which the Cinegy Multiviewer window will run and define the width and height of this window (in pixels).
To expand the Cinegy Multiviewer window to full screen, select the "Fullscreen/Stretch" checkbox.
RTP Output Settings
Select the "RTP Output" option from the left hand section of the "Output" settings" tab:
Here select the "Enabled" checkbox and configure the following RTP settings:
- Broadcast mode – choose the output transmission method (unicast or multicast).
Stream – choose the output stream protocol type (RTP or UDP).
IP & port – in the unicast mode, enter here the destination station address and port. In multicast mode, enter the IP and port of the multicast group that will be used for multicasting.
Primary source IP – enter the IP address of the local network adapter that will be used for multicast output.
Backup source IP – enter the IP address of the local network adapter that will be used for multicasting instead of the primary source IP.
- TTL – here define the number of routers (hops) that multicast traffic is permitted to pass through before expiring on the network.
Video Format Options
Define the video format of the rendered output stream. The following video formats are currently supported:
|Standard Definition||High Definition||Ultra High Definition|
|PAL 720x576i 25 fps 4:3
PAL 720x576i 25 fps 16:9
NTSC 720x480i 29.97 fps 4:3
NTSC 720x480i 29.97 fps 16:9
|PAL 1280x720p 50 fps
PAL 1920x1080i 25 fps
PAL 1920x1080p 25 fps
PAL 1920x1080p 50 fps
NTSC 1280x720p 59.94 fps
NTSC 1920x1080i 29.97 fps
NTSC 1920x1080p 29.97 fps
NTSC 1920x1080p 59.94 fps
|PAL 3840x2160p 25 fps
NTSC 3840x2160p 29.97 fps
Video Compression Options
- Video encoder – choose from the pull-down list the video encoder.
For the selected video stream you can also define its further parameters, such as bitrate, chroma subsampling type (4:2:0, 4:2:2), encoding method (Frame or Field), the length and type of the GOP sequence. For H.264 video stream the H.264 entropy coding mode setting is also available. The “Adaptive” option enabled allows GOP to be of variable length.
- Audio type – define the audio type with its associated bitrate for the selected video stream.
- Register output – this option allows you to register the output stream on the Channel Directory Server in order to be used by other Cinegy software components as an RTP/UDP input. In this case, enter the Channel Directory Server IP and output stream ID (any unique text string) or browse for the corresponding registration server via the "Browse" button.
