Cinegy lets JET Pack take flight

Cinegy, which develops and produces software technology for digital video processing, asset management, video compression, automation and playout, will use IBC to launch what it has dubbed the Cinegy JET Pack, an all-in-one media management annual subscription product for playout, graphics and branding, ingest and encoding, monitoring, live production and mixing, and transcoding.

JET Pack is available as an annual subscription for €1,995, including updates.

The Cinegy JET Pack includes Cinegy Air PRO real-time playout server and multi-channel broadcast automation software, Cinegy Capture PRO software for real-time ingest, Cinegy Multiviewer – four channels of multi-channel video monitoring software, Cinegy Live mixing and cutting software;,and Cinegy Convert transcoding and batch processing software.

All are available on a single annual subscription basis, or for purchase if desired.

Cinegy’s Head of Product Management, Lewis Kirkaldie, will present “Cloudy with a Chance of Media” in IBC’s Content Everywhere Technology in Action Theatre, located in Hall 3, on Friday September 11 at 14:00.

The presentation will be introduced by BBC Northern Ireland and will highlight how IP and cloud-based facilities can be safe, effective, and beneficial in a traditionally conservative world of broadcast-engineering software.

Kirkaldie will then highlight what has emerged from Cinegy’s R&D labs and how those developments have manifested themselves in the launch of JET Pack.

“JET Pack represents a major step-change in how to economically get a channel on air. Over the last 10 years our Cinegy product set has been technically proven to deliver business efficiencies during operations. With the introduction of JET Pack, the practice of spending hard-earned capital to buy multiple software products for installation on multiple big iron machines can join corded telephones in the museum,” said Cinegy CEO Jan Weigner.

“Now all you need is one Cinegy dongle and an annual subscription to provide a vast range of media management functions, all at a fraction of the cost to which most are accustomed. JET Pack can also be purchased for €4,995 including the first year of updates. That’s more than €20,000-worth of software for under 5K. Why not fly First Class and pay for Economy? Our software solutions are already the industry’s most solid and reliable foundation for every stage of the digital production process. We’ve just made its implementation, and the ability to get multiple channels on air quickly and painlessly, infinitely easier and so cost-effective that we know it’s going to take off in a big way. That’s why we’ve called it JET Pack.”
