Cinegy ML Version: 9.0.61110.3130

Release Date: February 22, 2024

Before you start the Cinegy Multiviewer installation, it is recommended to uninstall any previous versions of Cinegy Multiviewer components that you may have on your machine.
During installation, .NET Framework 4.8 is installed if the lower version is detected in the system. Operating system restart may be required after installation is complete.
The minimal supported NVIDIA driver version is 456.81.
System memory and resources leak when creating and closing threads with NVIDIA graphics is detected in drivers version 526.67. The issue was reported to NVIDIA support (NVIDIA Incident Report 4027304) and is fixed in version 535.98. We recommend using NVIDIA graphics drivers version 535.98 or later to fix the system memory and resources leak. Please verify the resources usage after drivers upgrades.
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.
Cinegy Multiviewer v24.2 requires installation of Cinegy Route v22.10 which uses IGMP v3 that is a requirement for SSM (Source Specific Multicast). Using an older version of Cinegy Route Directory Service will cause the "Source IP" checkbox to become unavailable.

Major Fixes

  • fixed video black issue on NDI sources from LiveU (defect 16724, ticket SXE-681-44255)

  • fixed invalid audio meters occasionally displayed for Dolby E audio pairs (defect 16608, ticket EMJ-131-26196)

  • fixed issue when changes applied via Designer Layout after MV restart result in MV starting with "NO License" in every player (defect 16003, ticket OTD-489-71906)

  • fixed application crash when mixed streams (24kHz and 48kHz audio) are used while RTP Output is active

  • fixed issue when the tab "Output settings" is red after selecting video encoder H.264 (defect 15894)

  • fixed incorrect number of MV channel licenses consumed in multi-layout configuration (defect 15942)

  • fixed incorrect display of size 100 % of scale for the "Zoom" command from the "View" main menu (defect 16232)

  • fixed issue when layout requires a license with a delay of one switching iteration (defect 16357)

  • fixed application crash when encoding for format NTSC 720x480p 29.97 fps 4:3 video encoders H-264–GPU and Daniel2-GPU (defects 16560, 16562)

  • fixed incorrect display of video when encoding for H.264–GPU (defect 16563)

Important Known Issues

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.

  • Blackmagic Design DeckLink video cards occasionally play video without sound or with distorted sound on output. Before using Blackmagic Design DeckLink cards for critical installations 24/7, extensive testing must be carried out in advance.
