Cinedeck has launched CD2, a software-only version of its ingest servers. CD2 shares the same features as the full range of Cinedeck Ingest Servers in a pure software solution.
Cinedeck CD2 makes it quick and easy for broadcasters and content producers to ingest raw footage ready for editing and distribution. Users can ingest using CD2 and distribute live thanks to Edit While Record and Playout While Record features. For non-live, ingested content can be scheduled using the Cinedeck multi-channel control app.
CD2 enables multi-camera ingest and supports a wide range of input formats, including JPEG2000, XAVC, ProRes, DNxHR, 4K Multicam, and Cinedeck recorders. It also supports all major input sources, such as SRT, NDI, 3G/12G and IP-2110.
CD2 provides a broad selection of text metadata elements that can be burned into the video image of a file while its recording. It also provides control of character out as an overlay on the user interface and the SDI video output and/or as a burn-in to the encoded video with fully adjustable position, size and colour.
Jane Sung, COO, Cinedeck, commented: “This new development offers the same feature-rich program as our existing ingest servers, except we have removed the reliance on hardware. Cinedeck is continually looking for ways to make workflows more efficient for our users and CD2 expands on our plans to bring ingest to the cloud.”
A fully customisable RESTful API makes it simple to integrate with other parts of the production and post-production workflow.
