Release Notes

Cinegy Traffic Gateway is an automated system that is designed to compose Cinegy Air playlists from externally generated "traffic" lists, as well as create MCRLists and MCRActiveApproved lists, which can further be appended to an existing playlist (manually or automatically).

Running as a service, Cinegy Traffic Gateway supports traffic lists provided as a standard SMPTE BXF XML format, or as simple yet powerful Cinegy-defined CSV (comma-separated-values) files. Lists can be sent to Cinegy Traffic Gateway via watch-folders, or, in the case of BXF files, via SOAP web service interfaces.
