Munich, Germany, 05 August 2020: Cinegy GmbH, the premier provider of software technology for digital video processing, asset management, video compression and automation, and playout, has released the latest version of Cinegy Multiviewer 15.2, solidifying Cinegy’s position as the leading IP and multipurpose multiviewer vendor.
Cinegy Multiviewer 15.2 is the most flexible multiviewer ever, great for on-premise and remote monitoring applications.
Streams from satellites, camera feeds, playout devices and other local or remote sources all need to be monitored. Cinegy Multiviewer displays and analyzes these signals, raising alerts for any detected signal problems. Running as a service operating on commodity IT equipment, video streams can be received over IP, eg UDP/RTP, NDI, SRT via Ethernet or using standard SDI cards.
Notable features introduced include latest version NDI support, using Cinegy Encode as an SDI output option, SRT encapsulated IP input and output stream inputs, and support for encrypted SRT streaming on input.
Cinegy fully supports the SRT Alliance which is visible in its entire product range. Head of Product Management Lewis Kirkaldie said, “For years the world of broadcasting has been anticipating an open and reliable technology to move signals around. Numerous attempts have been made by different enthusiasts across the industry but none of them got closer to fulfilling the requirement than the brilliant SRT.”
Multiviewer Version 15.2 offers further enhancements of its SRT support with additional SRT output encryption support along with DNS resolving for SRT URL addresses.
Kirkaldie adds, “The new Multiviewer has a great many performance optimizations and compatibility enhancements to run even more reliably on the latest Microsoft operating systems, as well as embracing the latest and greatest technologies and protocols widely used in the industry.”
Cinegy Multiviewer 15.2 also fully supports 8K workflows via IP or SDI. Cinegy's 8K capabilities were first deployed in 2015 upon the release of its Daniel2 codec which at the time was capable of decoding 16K video at 280 fps with an Nvidia Quadro M6000. Cinegy has further optimized and integrated Daniel2, making it ubiquitous through the software product range. Cinegy Multiviewer 15 joined Cinegy Capture PRO and Cinegy Air PRO in supporting 8K, via IP (SRT/RTP/UDP), SDI, NDI (e.g. BMD DeckLink 8K Pro) confidence software broadcast solutions when the major update v15 was released earlier this year.

Munich, Germany, 28 May 2020 - Cinegy today announced TURBOCUT, a new Adobe CC plug-in which significantly accelerates the editing of H.264/HEVC by utilising the NVIDIA GPU’s hardware decoder. This announcement coincides with Adobe releasing version 14.2 of Adobe Premiere with several new features added, but still missing NVIDIA hardware accelerated editing and using the NVIDIA GPU for decoding H.264 and HEVC.
As Jan Weigner, CEO Cinegy GmbH explained, “For many years, tens of thousands of users have been using the Daniel2 Plug-in for Adobe CC, which already offered the NVIDIA accelerated export of H.264 and HEVC. So when we accelerated the editing and import features, it was obvious that the original product name didn’t match the main goal of the plug-in with the Daniel2 video codec technology. TURBOCUT enables faster editing and production with better video quality and it’s also much easier to remember than Daniel2 Plugin for Adobe CC!
“This may not be that important for an owner of a dual 28-core Xeon processor workstation”, Weigner added, “but for those editing on a laptop or small PC and lucky enough to have a recent NVIDIA card installed, TURBOCUT will make a dramatic difference to their editing performance.”
The other main feature of TURBOCUT is that it brings the Daniel2 video codec to Adobe CC. When editing in the Daniel2 video format, which is the equivalent to Apple’s ProRes or AVID’s DNxHR, editing in 8K resolutions or higher is easily possible, even on relatively small machines (e.g. quad core processor) or laptops.
In addition, the TURBOCUT plug-in enables the use of the Daniel2 video codec as a preview file format, providing another significant performance boost over all other codecs. No matter what source format you are editing in, this will improve editing performance – and it’s free, as it’s always been, and available now for download from www.turbocut.com.

Cinegy will demonstrate the use of SRT-enabled Cinegy software at NAB, alongside the eye-popping demo of Cinegy 8K capabilities.
Cinegy Managing Director and CTO Jan Weigner said, “A lot of people still don’t understand that 8K is easy. Cinegy software has been handling 8K on standard laptops for years.
“What underpins this ability is our Daniel2 codec, which enables us to achieve compression technology and acceleration for 8K that is still unheard of anywhere else in the industry.”
Cinegy will also showcase TV Pack, a powerful, fully integrated channel and studio-in-a-box software solution that is priced at an affordable $4999.

Weigner added, “We are extremely proud of the extraordinary value we offer with the Cinegy TV Pack. It’s very powerful, yet easy to operate. If you wanted to, you could simultaneously run multiple TV Packs on one server, which a number of broadcasters worldwide have already discovered to their delight. And, of course, Cinegy TV Pack also has the numerous advantages of SRT baked into its core. It’s a total win-win-win package.”
