Turkey’s Haber Global invests in 24-channel Cinegy Capture PRO to support expanded content offering

Cinegy, a premier provider of software technology for digital video processing, asset management, video compression and automation, and playout services, today announces that Turkey’s Haber Global has deployed Cinegy Capture PRO to create a futureproof acquisition and transcode workflow. As one of the country’s most watched news services, Haber Global is expanding the channels and live feeds it offers to meet growing demand for its content. The broadcaster’s new 24-channel Cinegy Capture PRO not only supports its current needs but offers additional capacity to grow.

Cinegy Capture PRO provides Haber Global with a simple to install, flexible and reliable ingest resource, with shared access for multiple users. The solution combines ingest and transcode functions in a single system, simultaneously producing video files and web proxies in multiple formats ready for editing.

“Our viewers want to get more of the news stories impacting them and we knew that our ingest capabilities had to increase to handle more cameras, programs and outsource resources to meet their needs. We wanted to be able to record 24 channels, and do this with as few servers as possible,” said Önder Yavçin, CIO at Haber Global. “Cinegy Capture PRO met all our needs. Not only do we now have reliable, futureproof ingest capability but our team can work more efficiently and collaboratively than in the past.”

Cinegy Capture PRO delivers an elegant, cost-effective solution for centralized ingest and is built from the ground-up to operate as a completely independent ingest tool. The solution can be used as an application by any user on the network thanks to the simple yet powerful cross-platform control client. Cinegy Capture PRO runs on a standard PC with the addition of one or more SDI cards.

Murat Küçüksaraç, COO of Cinegy AŞ, commented: “Haber Global is an innovator and brings a new breath of fresh air to the Turkish media sector. We were incredibly pleased to work with them on this project to support their growing infrastructure. Cinegy Capture PRO gives customers a radical take on the traditional acquisition and transcode systems and creates fast, intuitive, collaborative workflows in an easy to deploy system.”
