Playout and automation Cinegy has launched Cinegy-as-a-Service, a hardware-free way of enabling users to deploy software-defined television on cloud-based virtual machines. All of Cinegy’s software technology, starting with its real-time playout server and broadcast automation software, Cinegy Air, will eventually be made available via cloud-based services - including Amazon Web Services (AWS). This will allow users to spin up, test drive, and deploy Cinegy technology in an HD or 4K cloud. Cinegy chief executive Jan Weigner said: “Expensive broadcast hardware is now someone else’s problem. You can open your broadcast tap high, low, or not at all as required and pay for what you use, when you use it rather than watch your capital swirl down the drain.” Content delivery Spectral Edge is hoping that a server-based version of its Eyeteq technology will help broadcasters improve accessibility for colour-blind and colour-deficient viewers. The development allows operators to automatically process content at the head-end, and then stream Eyeteq-enhanced video to subscribers in real-time via existing set top boxes or other devices, such as tablets, smartphones or smart, internet-enabled TVs. As image enhancement takes place within the operator’s infrastructure, Eyeteq Server enables multiscreen content delivery while removing the need to update or replace consumer hardware. Based on Spectral Edge’s Phusion technology, Eyeteq allows colour-deficient viewers to better differentiate between colour combinations. Spectral Edge recently announced the completion of £1.5 million second funding round.
