News: Cinegy to launch Channel-in-a-Cloud at NAB 2018
(March 28, 2018) At NAB 2018, Cinegy will launch its Channel-in-the-Cloud™ which consists of Cinegy Air PRO playout and automation solution and Cinegy Multiviewer system in a single bundle. The new Channel-in-the-Cloud package is now available on AWS (Amazon Web Services) and Microsoft Azure Marketplace. The package provides automation, playout, branding, master control, analytics and alarms in a single, ready-to-launch cloud instance with pay-as-you-go hourly pricing, which is a vastly simplified way for broadcasters, corporations, or anyone with a valid credit card to instantly get single or multiple channels of SD, HD and/or Ultra HD 4K playout running in the cloud.
Cinegy Air PRO product consists of two primary elements: a control panel and a playout engine. The control panel is a state-of-the-art interface for one or more playout channels connected via TCP/IP. The playout engine executes the playlist and renders video and audio to air.
Cinegy Multiviewer enables broadcasters and production houses to monitor streams from local and remote sources and features a powerful analysis and alert system that detects signal problems as they occur.
Cinegy Managing Director Daniella Weigner said, “We’re thrilled to be able to offer this Channel-in-the-Cloud package. It combines two of the most powerful solutions we have ever developed which, together, provides an unbeatable channel delivery and monitoring system.”
Pricing for the Channel-in-the-Cloud bundle starts at $0.375/hour plus cloud infrastructure costs. There are no hidden expenditures. It’s strictly pay as you use.
Weigner added, “Cinegy Channel-in-the-Cloud is a major leap forward in software-only broadcasting and we are delighted to launch it in North America at NAB and announce its worldwide availability.”
