Cinegy will use IBC to unveil two new modules for Cinegy Workflow, the media asset management and archive technology that forms part of the BBC’s Digital Media Initiative.

‘Cinebridge’ will integrate popular third party applications while ‘Gateway’ can convert SD and HD SDI streams into a broadcast quality SMPTE-compliant RTP/UDP streams and back.

The company will also unveil support for Panasonic’s AVC-Intra HD video format at the show as well as a new graphical user interface.

Managing director Daniella Weigner said: “We are developing new tools and options designed to make digital workflows even more efficient and more cost effective. The developments in IP infrastructure technology enable most of the expensive SDI cabling costs to be removed from the budget, while the increased efficiencies lead to a reduced operating expenditure over time.”

  • Cinegy Cinebridge allows any software that supports AVI file format - including many types of editing, VFX and graphics software - to directly access media stored on Cinegy media archive without conversion.
  • This is done by creating AVI files simulations and rendering frames as it reads them.
  • These simulated AVI files then appear as normal AVI files to the integrated application, even when the original media involves multiple codec formats such as H.264, MPEG2 and MXF.

Cinegy Workflow is used by Siemens IT Solutions as part of the BBC’s Digital Media Initiative.

The technology is also used by the London facility Evolutions to aid post-production of television programmes.

Cinegy will be exhibiting on Stands 7.A3 and 7.A43 at IBC. The show runs from 10-15 September in Amsterdam.
