Software technology developer and producer Cinegy has announced Cinegy Open.
The new initiative is designed to make powerful tools and useful information freely available to the public.
Daniella Weigner (pictured), managing director of Cinegy, said, “We have lowered the drawbridge to our magic castle. We want to connect with people who have creative ideas but perhaps lack the tools or experience in their work environment to develop and test them.
“Cinegy Open, as the name implies, will enable developers to use our knowledge base as building blocks for new solutions, including new products of their own.”
Previously, Cinegy’s API’s have been used to develop, test, and improve its software solutions. It is now, however, placing all API’s, manuals and documentation in the public domain. The new Cinegy Open website will automatically update on a regular basis to supply consumers with a steady flow of information.
Open will also offer a range of Cinegy Open Tools, designed for the IP convergence space, available for free download without the need to register.
The tools, which include codec and stream analysis tools, can be used individually or across an industry to test, check, analyse and convert, or benchmark new solutions and product rollouts.
Weigner added, “In an internet age, to make a difference you have to be different. We believe in open standards and want to make a difference in our industry by being different in how we interact and support those who may be an eyelash away from the next big thing, but can’t quite get there without the right tools.
“Others sell similar tools of course, but we simply want people to benefit from our knowledge and, in turn, drive our industry forward, faster, and for free.”
