Release Notes

Cinegy Multiviewer is the key member of the IP-based broadcast solution family. It enables broadcasters and production houses to monitor streams from satellites, camera feeds, playout devices and other sources locally and remotely. Featuring a robust analysis and alert system detecting signal problems as they occur, Cinegy Multiviewer runs on commodity IT servers or workstations receiving MPEG-TS streams over RTP/UDP/SRT or NDI streams via Ethernet or uncompressed video using standard SDI cards from vendors such as AJA, BMD, DVS or Deltacast. Decoding support for MPEG-2 / H.264 up to 8K in full 4.2.2 color, along with MPEG audio, AAC-HE2 and Dolby Digital / AC-3 decoding is built in – with Dolby® E decoding available as an option.

Known Limitations

Note
These limitations will be addressed in the next releases.
  • Nvidia RTX and other Turing-generation GPU boards no longer support interlace H.264 encoding. This applies to all versions of any Cinegy software supporting GPU encoding and is a hardware limitation of the Nvidia boards. Pascal and earlier boards are not affected. If using GPU accelerated Nvidia features, please be careful to match your settings to the capabilities of your board.

  • I-Frame only HEVC streams are not currently supported or decoded.

  • DNS resolving is currently not supported for SRT URL addresses - IP addresses should be used.

  • Cinegy Route Browser integration is temporarily disabled due to incompatibility with the old versions of Cinegy Route. This issue will be resolved automatically with an upgrade to Cinegy Route 15. Cinegy Route Virtual Destinations are still a valid input source regardless of a version installed.

  • Minor issue with Korean text display in EIA-708 Closed Captions.
