Cinegy Workspace supports the playback of media files in WEB quality. The network shares in your database should be configured to work with the virtual directory for WEB quality files. Currently, MP4 format is supported for WEB quality.

Note
Cinegy Workspace requires an installed and configured web server. You can use any web server of your choice. In this documentation, we will describe an example when IIS is used.

Internet Information Service Configuration

Install and configure the Internet Information Service on your computer to manage virtual directories. The IIS configuration procedure is as follows:

Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager:

IIS_manager

Next expand the "Sites" folder, right-click "Default Web Site" and choose the "Add Virtual Directory…​" context menu command.

IIS_add_virtual_directory

In the "Add Virtual Directory" dialog box that appears, specify the path to the WEB content directory in the "Physical path" field by pressing the browse_button button or via the keyboard. Also define the directory name in the "Alias" field:

IIS_virtual_directory

Then press the "Connect as…​" button and choose the "Specific user" option in the following dialog:

IIS_virtual_directory_user

Press the "Set…​" button and in the next form define the user credentials with necessary access rights.

Note
In case of using several shares for WEB Quality files, a separate virtual directory should be created for each WEB content directory.

Adding a Network Share

The next step is adding a network share and specifying the URLs for the WEB quality files via Cinegy Enterprise Manager:

Network_shares
Important
Refer to the Network Shares paragraph in the Cinegy Enterprise Manager Manual to learn how to edit network shares.

Hardware Dongle

You need to install a USB hardware dongle with connection license to the machine where Cinegy Archive Service is launched in order to use Cinegy Workspace.

Important
Refer to the Cinegy License Service paragraph within the Cinegy Archive Service Manual for information on the hardware dongle installation.
