Input Page | Overview

User-friendly design is emphasized on the input and input overview page.

Cinedeck’s input page provides access for recording any of the standard SD, HD, 2K and optionally 4K resolutions and frame rates. And, it can handle 8 bit, 10 bit and in some cases 444 color depths. Audio sources are SDI, AES and there are options for analog audio. Other input settings include selecting the recording behavior when a signal is lost or a dropped frame is detected.
The Overview provides a simple snapshot of all the settings active for a selected channel.  From the overview page, it’s easy to see all your record channels since all relevant information is easily accessible from one window.


Input Page
Signal InputThe input page allows you to select settings for the input source for a specific channel. Depending on the platform and software available, a user can record up to 8 independent sources on a single deck with different resolutions, framerates, formats and audio type.

Additionally, pressing the “Auto Detect” button makes your input setup simple as it will automatically determine the appropriate resolution and framerate. Audio is selected manually.

Toggle the arrow on the top right to select, view and adjust each input or use the “copy to other channels button” on the bottom right to copy settings between channels.

Input Overview
Input & Encoder OverviewThe input overview page provides a complete, detailed snapshot of your channel setup including input and encoder settings which are selected on the master/proxy encoder pages.

Additionally, project selection and setup are accessed from the Overview page.

Beyond the included Project Name, Scene Names, Tape and Reel ID, etc., all of which are also hotlinks to their respective settings pages, each channel can have both a custom label and custom input name to make channel identification easier and these custom labels and names can be used in folder and file naming.

Located on the bottom of the input overview page with the customizable input names and labels are thumbnail previews of the incoming video on each channel.
