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.
A modern NVIDIA GPU card is required for HEVC preview. Routing and registering the feeds is still possible without a card.

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.


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 Cinegy Route Directory Service / Cinegy Route Directory Relay Service does not require access to the video multicast data.
