Cinegy Introduces Hardware Storage Server With XenData at IBC 2018

Cinegy Platform One is a a 2RU integrated MAM and storage server developed and marketed with XenData.

For many organisations, the sheer volume of video files creates considerable challenges associated with storing, organising, finding and reusing their media assets. The conventional approach is to rely on a shared disk storage, a Media Asset Management (MAM) server, and an archive server. However this approach has its own challenges when it comes to getting these components to work harmoniously. Cinegy Platform One integrates all these of elements on a single, powerful server.”

The Cinegy MAM software includes the Archive for digitising tape-based archives and metadata collection. Production is looked after with Desktop, a tool that provides real-time access to archived media. Cinegy Desktop also includes tools for logging and editing, and the ability to import and export media to third-party NLE and automation systems.

Transcoding is handled with Convert, which functions like a network-based print server.  This feature can perform repetitive export and conversion tasks by “printing” material to predefined formats and destinations.

The Cinegy Platform One system will be available with either 24, 34, or 44 disks. Two disks are configured as hot spares and the remaining disks are configured in RAID60 for reliability and ultra-high performance optimised for video streaming and 4K-plus workflows.
