Cinegy, which develops and produces software for digital video processing, asset management, automation, and playout announced the launch of its ‘Great Summer Playout Trade-In’ initiative, designed to enable users of existing playout technologies to replace them with a future-proof Cinegy alternative. The trade-in scheme is valid until 30 September 2016 for qualifying systems, subject to certain terms and conditions.
Cinegy’s CEO Jan Weigner said that aging hardware-based playout solutions are nearing end-of-life, which has the dual threat of increasing maintenance costs and diminishing confidence in the ability to address near-term and future playout requirements. “We are offering the opportunity to break from the past once and for all and embrace a broadcast future that will remain contemporary for as long as content needs to be created, processed, and delivered – which should be quite some time,” he added.
Cinegy is offering the ability to trade in eligible legacy playout solutions for Cinegy Air PRO bundle that includes playout, CG, automation and many other functions for SD, HD, 4K & IP with ease at a fraction of the cost of more traditional approaches.
According to Weigner, “This is not to say you have to throw old boxes away. They can in many cases be used for storage, or work alongside the Cinegy Air PRO bundle as it beds in. However, for as little as $1699 (€1495) it is a pretty inexpensive bet on the future.”
