Cinegy updates Cinegy Air for HDR and SDR playout through an HLG engine

The playout engine can also create a simulcast SDR stream from a primary HDR engine

Cinegy has announced a major upgrade to its Cinegy Air software, including an update to the graphics and branding engine, now called Cinegy Title.

Cinegy Air can also now playout both HDR and SDR sources through an HLG Air engine, with the ability to select conversion LUTs per item. LUTs are applied automatically where possible, said the company, and can be manually selected from drop-down options within the playlist tab. The playout engine can now also create a simulcast SDR stream from a primary HDR engine.

Cinegy Air can now also generate Kantar audio watermarks for audience measurement and content protection. Other new functionality includes enhanced preview playout for playlist verification. For multichannel operators Air Playlist Editor can now use audio matrix and character generator settings across multiple playlists, ensuring consistency across regional variations, said the company.

The rebranded Cinegy Title has also been updated with a number of user interface refinements as well as new graphics tools like auto expanding text boxes with background plates and the ability to create large composite backgrounds from multiple tiles of small images.

“All the enhancements we are introducing in this major new release are driven by feedback from our users,” said Simon Pilbeam, product manager at Cinegy. “Our goal has always been to create a powerful, flexible, practical solution that provided the technology before you even knew you needed it, and that drives our development strategy, in areas like our support of high resolution and high dynamic range Ultra HD.”
