Bangkok-based CS Innovation Technology (CSIT) has deployed Cinegy technology to support production and playout for Plan B Media at the Summer Games in Tokyo. A long-time Cinegy partner, CS Innovation Technology relied on Cinegy Air Pro, an IP-based software suite for automated SD, HD and/or Ultra HD (4K) playout, to handle multichannel playout of live feeds from the event.
Plan B Media, the exclusive Thai rightsholder for the Tokyo Games, delivered live feeds of all the live action to giant LED screens across Thailand.
CS Innovation Technology managing director Chinnarong Ooragool said: “This excellent software easily allows us to support full HD online playout and GPU encoding to Nvidia, making the workflow faster and more cost-effective.”
Cinegy Air Pro supports various encoding formats, EAS, watermarking and Cinegy Titler channel branding in a single, software platform. It also enables high frame rate Ultra HD formats (50/60p), includes integrated HEVC stream encoding and allows users to offload HEVC and H.264 stream encoding to an Nvidia GPU.
Cinegy managing director Daniella Weigner said: “We are delighted that our Cinegy Air Pro Bundle played such a key role in delivering the live action from the games to sports fans across Thailand. Our solution gives CSIT the power to get content on air instantly, eliminating the need for multiple complex processes and interconnecting hardware components. As a result, playout can be handled at a fraction of what it would cost by conventional means.”
Using Cinegy Air Pro, the CSIT team was able to control multiple channels, insert regionalised commercials and add graphics and channel branding.
