Cinegy Convert is Cinegy’s server-based transcoding and batch processing service. Designed to function like a network-based print server, it can be used to perform repetitive export and conversion tasks by “printing” material to predefined formats and destinations. Available in both standalone and Cinegy Archive integrated variants, Cinegy Convert saves time that can be applied to more important activities by automating repetitive tasks. Processing is performed on dedicated Cinegy Convert servers that act as a print queue/spooler, processing tasks in order. Highly flexible, scalable and interactive it is an ideal tool for converting material into different formats and for integration with third-party NLE systems.
Cinegy Convert enables effective consumption of your resources by running as many simultaneous tasks per machine as required. All processes are optimised to 64-bit and independent from each other, allowing the use of all available processing power to save precious time.
Cinegy Convert is suitable for both single machine installations and large enterprise level transcoding farms. Internal architecture allows effective load balancing and tasks processing on any number of dedicated Cinegy Convert servers while keeping the deployment as simple as possible.
Cinegy Convert provides rich feedback on the processes being performed and statuses of every single node of the processing network. Information can be taken from the central coordination service providing the general overview on the system health or directly from the processing nodes including live feedback on tasks progress including video preview when required. Extensive logs, with configurable log levels, provide additional information about when, where and what tasks were performed by each job server.
Cinegy Convert protects your data at every stage of the process from taking the task from the watched folders to publishing results in Cinegy Archive. In case of any issues the system will try to recover the task while providing rich feedback to an operator.
Cinegy Convert accepts tasks both manually and automatically. Operators using an appropriate client application can submit custom processing tasks or a dedicated watch folder can be created, processing the incoming media automatically, according to the pre-configured parameters.
Cinegy Archive Integration
Cinegy Convert is fully integrated with Cinegy Archive, utilizing the job folders infrastructure. Any Cinegy Desktop connected to the archive can easily create exporting, transcoding, quality building tasks via a simple drag-and-drop operation within the job folder window. These special folders can be set up to perform specific repetitive actions. Tasks assigned to a particular folder can be viewed, managed and monitored through the job folder window. Working in Archive integrated mode, Cinegy Convert automates such important tasks as media import, media export, additional qualities creation, etc.

Cinegy Workspace empowers media production teams to collaborate on projects wherever they are – in the office, at home or on the road. Cinegy Workspace provides secure access to your Cinegy Archive Database from anywhere at any time. All that is required is a standard computer or laptop running Windows or Mac OS, and a regular internet connection. Using the Cinegy Workspace browser-based interface, clips can be searched, browsed, selected and even edited. Users can participate in a collaborative workflow even when they are based in different locations.
Cinegy's world leading media asset management solution Cinegy Archive now includes Cinegy Archive Services and the Cinegy Workspace client to access them. Cinegy Archive Services provide a secure way to allow Workspace clients either in the local network or via the Internet to access the Cinegy Archive contents. Cinegy Workspace has been developed using all new technology based on Microsoft's Silverlight providing cross platform support (running on Windows and Mac OS) and requires no dedicated application installation.
Collaboration, Anywhere, Any Time
Changes are visible immediately allowing real-time collaboration. For more advanced operations such as HD timeline editing the Cinegy Desktop client remains the best choice. Changes made to a project from a team member on the road using the Cinegy Workspace client are immediately reflected in the Cinegy Desktop application and vice versa.
Using the latest web advances Cinegy offers a rich internet application for users on their preferred computer platform, allowing them to access their assets from anywhere and collaborate in real-time. Cinegy Workspace transforms your digital production system into a modern mobile workflow.
- Remotely manage material. Create, delete, rename and move folders and bins.
- Quickly and easily manage metadata stored against clips, using the clipbin table view.
- Play clips in clip bins and rolls. Play clip bins as sequences, set markers and create sub-clips.
- Submit edited storyboards to Cinegy Convert via integrated job drop folders.
- Easily locate clip origins.
- While viewing clips in the Cinegy Workspace player, windowed or full-screen playback can be controlled via industry-standard keyboard shortcuts or mouse.
- System information, media timecode and duration information can be displayed in the viewer.

Flexible and Scalable
Five Cinegy Workspace licenses are included with the Cinegy Archive Database, allowing any five users access at any given time. Extra licenses can be added quickly and easily allowing more users to work simultaneously on the collaborative production process. For large organizations a separate Cinegy Workspace Server can be set up to provide a scalable enterprise volume platform. With the Cinegy Workspace Server in place concurrent access is available to all permitted users, with the number of simultaneous connections dependent on server capacity and network bandwidth.
