​Cinegy Releases Air PRO with High Frame Rate Support

Cinegy has announced Air PRO Version 11, its latest playout server and multi-channel broadcast automation software with high frame rate UHD support at 50p and 60p.

In addition, Cinegy has integrated HEVC stream encoding with specific NVidia graphics cards, plus the ability if required to offload HEVC and H.264 stream encoding to the NVidia GPU.

Managing Director Daniella Weigner said, “With Version 11, users can use commodity hardware to stream UHD. No other equipment is required. And because Version 11 includes a loudness limiter and Dolby E encoding and decoding, external devices or internal software used for compliance, decoding, or subtitling can be eliminated.”

The loudness limiter enables users to ensure that content complies with EBU R128 and CALM loudness regulations. For Australian broadcasters, Version 11 also supports OP42/47 subtitling requirements.

Version 11 also sports Cinegy’s next-generation of in-built channel branding, which works in a cloud or virtual environment. This is for control of multiple channels that air the same content but require regionalized commercials and branding.

Existing Cinegy Air users with a valid service level agreement can upgrade to Version 11 at no cost.
