Cinegy News Is Demonstrated At Broadcast India

Cinegy News comes pre-configured with everything needed to get a news channel on the air from ingest through editing to approval and playout.

The Cinegy News live news production system didn’t come about by accident, as Andrew Ward, Cinegy business development manager,  told The Broadcast Bridge. In fact, it was originally developed specifically for the company's largest customer, Dotan Media Holdings in Istanbul, Turkey.

As Ward explained, Cinegy News was first demonstrated at September's IBC and again at the October Broadcast India exhibition in Mumbai.

“We had this news editing system as part of the desktop product but a lot of customers didn’t know about it,” he said. “So we thought we’d let folks know it exists by providing a pre-configured system along with a shopping list of hardware. Cinegy Desktop becomes a complete newsroom computer system (NRCS) with all of the integrated news tools that journalists expect.

The Cinegy News system is is based on Cinegy Archive, which is the back end of the MAM for the news desktop solution. The editing system features include; timeline editing, ingest, transcoding, linear play-out, multiviewer control and a video player. The result is a complete news gathering and production system.

“We are confident that with our system you can get raw content ready for air faster than with most other approaches because you go straight from our MAM directly to playout in one integrated system. “The reason we came to Broadcast India is the great interest visitors to our booth have shown with our approach," said Ward.

An interesting footnote is that Cinegy has a history of developing major technologies for specific customers. The company built an ingest and management system for the BBC’s Digital Media Initiative series, “Planet Earth”.
