Cinegy unveils Ethernet-based broadcast migration

Cinegy has launched a set of modular tools designed to replace its outdated SDI architecture with an IP-based Ethernet framework allowing broadcasters to better manage their broadcast production environment.
The Cinegy Streaming Suite is designed to provide tools for managing HD and SD network streams and satellite feeds while preserving signal quality. It also can manage multiple RTP signals from a single station while keeping each registered stream under control.
Replacing legacy SDI-based infrastructures with IP-based Ethernet infrastructure has become an increasingly popular choice among broadcasters seeking to improve workflow efficiency and cut costs. IP infrastructures permit video data to be transported over Ethernet networks, rather than via SDI switches and cable. The resulting IP infrastructures are more scalable and far less costly to build and maintain and they also provide greater signal capacity and enhanced flexibility for broadcast operations.
The Cinegy Streaming Suite includes Cinegy Gateway, Cinegy Monitor and Cinegy Route, each of which can function as a standalone solution or as a component of a comprehensive Cinegy Workflow installation.
Taken as a whole, the suite offers scalable signaling infrastructure using inexpensive IT switching equipment; a gateway for SDI to RTP, RTP to SDI or RTP to RTP; support for IP streams up to 300mbps; a high-availability option for failover without frame loss; integration with any SMPTE compliant RTP/UDP equipment; stream processing; and support for stream routing and virtual sources and destinations.
