Cinedeck Advantage for Government Workflows

For over a decade, Cinedeck has been delivering record and ingest solutions to the government space. With over one hundred installations, we have proven experience and know-how for the most critical record environments. Our customers include NASA, US Army, US Navy and the US House of Representatives. Due to our long history of supporting JPEG2000, Cinedeck  ingest systems are used for archive recordings both in the US and internationally.

Record multiple resolutions and/or codecs to the same system so that one pass of ingest is all you need to create all file types.

Cinedeck’s flexibility means that we also support various metadata requirements.

Cinedeck offers a web based control interface that can automate countdown based scheduled records. 


Cinedeck ingest servers support a huge range of codecs, wrappers, colorspace and resolutions.

Ingest directly to your shared storage so that your files are available immediately. And build in redundancy to your workflow by ingesting a separate set of files simultaneously.

Cinedeck supports various record styles that give you the needed flexibility to tackle any job.

Features Matter

Cinedeck ingest systems support features that critical record situations require such as IRIG-B timecode, multi-channel lossless JPEG2000 and H.264 encoding, uncompressed formats and VANC insertion and extraction all in one plug and play device.


With a track record of resolving northwards of 90% of support requests within the hour, our comprehensive service desk ensures your support requests are handled quickly. 

Register yourself with our service portal for access to your current and past requests and a direct line to our dev team members.


We recognize that every workflow is different. That’s why Cinedeck offers tailored video burn-ins,  metadata and XMLs, to name a few customizations.

Whether you need a control interface that works with your legacy peripherals or want to future proof your ingest, we look forward to collaborating with you.

NASA Kennedy Space Center Workflow

From countdown to launch, Cinedeck records multiple channels of critical data for review, distribution and archive for NASA Kennedy Space Center. If you’ve seen rocket launches from NASA KSC in the past few years, it likely started as a Cinedeck recording. 

Find out more about their workflow by reading the NASA whitepaper.

Up to 100 video streams are recorded to Cinedeck ZX  servers from countdown at 24 hours prior to launch through eight minutes after launch.
