That we can have tools that help us speed up the video production and post-production processes, not slow it down.
The popularity of video is growing rapidly and so are the demands and expectations for quality, low cost and speed.
Post-production isn’t without its challenges. Workflows are complex and constrained by the industry’s long-held beliefs. Many professionals follow workflows and practices that they’ve known for years, but the fact that it’s known does not mean it’s effective.
We’ve designed Cinedeck to provide flexible and versatile multi-channel video recorders. Work on any project, regardless of how big or complex it is. Cinedeck allows greater control over video recording live events and multi-cam projects.
We’ve developed cineXtools to redefine post workflows. We aim to eliminate complete show exports and QC sessions to make tiny fixes. cineXtools enables editors to make changes to shows not in hours or days, but in minutes. Directly edit the flat files with no exporting or QCing needed.
Let us empower you with the tools you need to speed through your deliverables, and we’ll change the video industry together!
Cinedecks are multi-channel video recorders. We've developed them to make video recording easier, more flexible and versatile.
Cinedeck multi-channel recorders make multi-cam productions faster and smoother.
We've designed features with workflow flexibility in mind. Our recorders support a wide variety or codecs, wrappers, formats, and resolutions. You can record and map up to 32 audio channels per input and even record closed captions. Record two master files and two proxies per channel, simultaneously. Control all the settings right from the display of the recorder, or with our Multi-Channel Control app. And finally, use our built-in quick QC tools like histograms, graph overlays, and other features to make sure that the video you want is the video you get.
Does it sound like a Cinedeck recorder may be the only recorder you would ever need? We’re glad it does. We designed our video recorders with that in mind.
We want you to be able to work on any project - no matter the size or scale. We want the sky to be your limit, not your video recorder. Learn more about Cinedeck here.
CineXtools is a media-file and deliverables management application. It's designed to save you hours of work and speed you through your deliverables.
It is professional video editing software that helps you make fixes to flat files. CineXtools allows you to edit new video, audio, and captions without re-exporting. Yes, that's right. You don't have to re-QC or re-render the same project again, but focus only on the changes you need to make. Just like working on film!
cineXinsert, the main module, enables overwriting specific data at the essentials’ level. You can set specific in and end points and change only the section between them. Everything else about the video file remains the same.
cineXtools consists of several modules each with its unique functions. You can read more on all its features here.
It’s important to us to be unafraid of change and be willing to go against the grain. It allows us to think independently, come up with new ideas, and embrace new possibilities.
They all are important for us to deliver the best possible value to our customers.
As a result, they designed an innovative multi-channel recorder unit for video production. It offers on-set monitoring, playback, and quality control. The recorder supports multiple codecs, format, resolution, and audio channels. It also unifies filming and production workflows- all in a single device.
The recorders were well-received by the industry. The team released several models, each with its unique specifics.
Then, they decided to move further… To revolutionize the video editing industry as well.
Post-production is a tedious and time-consuming process. Especially, if you notice an error in a show that’s already exported and QCed. Fixing even tiny mistakes, such as a misspelled title, requires re-exporting and re-QCing, often more than once. That costs companies a lot of time and resources.
In 2016, Cinedeck released cineXtools, their first standalone software application. cineXinsert, its main feature, allows file-to-file insert edit. It works much in the same way as editing on film.
Yet, the challenge was to persuade the industry that insert-edit was even possible. Because industry professionals had grown familiar with workflows they’d been using for years.
Despite the resistance, Cinedeck has proven that it’s not only possible—but very efficient.
An example of a successful project is helping Sky TV rebrand 400 assets.
A traditional transcode workflow would have taken them 600 man-hours to re-render and re-QC. That’s over a month of saved man-hours! CineXtools managed to cut the time almost 40 times. So, they spent only 16 man-hours with our video editing software instead.
Other clients include BBC, Showtime, Envy Post, Cartoon Network and more.
Cinedeck’s also developed CineX API and CineX plugins. They continue working on offering clients an even wider array of options.
