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.

Cinegy Multiviewer 15.1

Cinegy Multiviewer Release: 15.1

Cinegy Multiviewer Build: 15.1.0.3760.35

Release Date: April 22, 2020

Caution
Before you start the installation, it is recommended to uninstall any previous versions of Cinegy Multiviewer components that you may have on your machine.
Note
Cinegy Multiviewer 15.1 requires AJA driver version 15.x for proper work with AJA cards. If you are currently using Cinegy Capture or Cinegy Air with AJA SDI cards, we do not recommend installing Cinegy Multiviewer 15.1 on the same server with those applications due to their incompatibility with AJA driver v15.x. This is going to be addressed in the next releases of Cinegy Air and Cinegy Capture.

Known Issues and Limitations

Note
These limitations will be addressed in the next releases.
