System Recommendations

Operating Systems Support

Cinegy Route runs on the following operating systems: Windows 10, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019.

Operating system recommendation: Windows 10 Pro / Windows Server 2019 (for HD operations it is recommended to use 64 bit OS with at least 6GB of RAM).

We recommend updating Windows OS to include the latest Microsoft updates and hotfixes.

Hardware Recommendations

Cinegy products work only on machines with CPU supporting minimum instruction set SSE4.1
These system recommendations use older hardware which has been previously tested. The CPU’s listed should be used as a guide to select modern equivalent options and not as direct requirements.

Standard IT hardware. Preview decoding of video streams on client stations will require variable processing power depending on video stream raster, encoding, profile and bitrates. A modern i7 desktop CPU should comfortably decode any SD/HD material possible. HEVC encoded streams are not currently supported in the preview display.


For reliable multicast operation, we recommend video traffic is carried over a separate network (or at least a separate network adapter). If the client tools are not installed as well, the server hosting the Channel Directory Service / Relay does not require access to the video multicast data.
