Cinegy's Continues Success With Channel One In Russia

Cinegy, a developer of world-leading workflow, asset management and OEM solutions for the broadcast and post production industries, has announced the success of the Cinegy installation at the Russian television station, Channel One.
Cinegy software has enabled Channel One to preserve several decades of Russian television history from the Good Morning show, using a modern digital archive. The show is now looking to incorporate other Cinegy tools into their workflow.
The most known TV brand in Russian television, Channel One offers a diverse mix of programming including news and documentaries, talk shows, feature film presentations, game shows and sports.
Since 1986, Channel One's breakfast show Good Morning has been helping people start their day with four hours of news and stories from all spheres of life, mixing live interviews in the studio from the most famous artists, athletes, scientists and politicians of the current day.
In 2008, Good Morning selected Cinegy software to transfer their highly valued video archive from tape into digital storage archive, so it could be preserved for the future. The implementation was a great success and was expanded on one year later.
Andrey Artamonov, Technical Director at Good Morning (Channel One), said: "Cinegy has allowed Good Morning to make a complete transition to a tapeless archive from Betacam SP and Sony IMX tapes, enabling search via keywords and other parameters, creating significant savings on time and cost."
Now the Good Morning team is looking at how to expand their Cinegy installation and modernise other parts of their workflow to generate more savings and production efficiency benefits. The next step for Good Morning will be implementing Cinegy Air for playout and broadcast automation, followed by a switch to high definition and eventually, totally eliminating tapes in workflow and production.
Cinegy Managing Director Daniella Weigner said: "The original priorities for Good Morning were scalability, reliability and an affordable price. Two years later and we continue to provide a strong focus on these areas so we are very pleased that Channel One was looking at adding Cinegy Air to their system to modernise their playout workflow as well. Cinegy's modular structure makes it ideal for this kind of gradual rollout and modernisation."
Today, the total storage space for Good Morning is 90 TB. Thanks to Cinegy technology, it is easy to expand as needed by adding more disk arrays, or to replace obsolete disks in order to stay at the forefront of modern developments. The Cinegy system at Good Morning now includes the Cinegy Archive along with 20 Cinegy Desktop connections (three used as DV/1394 ingest stations), with five dedicated Cinegy Ingest workstations.
