Cinegy Workspace empowers media production teams to collaborate on projects wherever they are – in the office, at home or on the road. Cinegy Workspace provides secure access to your Cinegy Archive database from anywhere at any time. All that is required is a standard computer or laptop running Windows or Mac OS, and a regular Internet connection. Using the Cinegy Workspace browser-based interface, clips can be searched, browsed, selected and even edited. Users can participate in a collaborative workflow even when they are based in different locations.
Cinegy’s world leading media asset management solution Cinegy Archive now includes Cinegy Archive Services and the Cinegy Workspace client to access them. Cinegy Archive Services provide a secure way to allow Workspace clients either in the local network or via the Internet to access the Cinegy Archive contents. Cinegy Workspace has been developed as a rich Internet application to provide cross-platform support (running on Windows and Mac OS) and requires no dedicated application installation.
Collaboration, Anywhere, Any Time
Changes are visible immediately allowing real-time collaboration. For more advanced operations such as HD timeline editing the Cinegy Desktop client remains the best choice.

For large organizations a separate Cinegy Workspace Server can be set up to provide a scalable enterprise volume platform. With the Cinegy Workspace Server in place concurrent access is available to all permitted users, with the number of simultaneous connections dependent on server capacity and network bandwidth.
By providing access to media files from anywhere in the world, Cinegy Workspace adds flexibility, efficiency and convenience to the Cinegy workflow production process. Changes made to database content via Cinegy Workspace are immediately stored in the Cinegy Archive database.

Granular access rights control, user management and integration with existing enterprise IT solutions allow simple and secure management even for large user bases. Sophisticated security features are included to prevent unauthorized access to the media archive. Logging on to Cinegy Workspace requires a username and password along with a correct domain name and workgroup. Authentication is performed with Active Directory or LDAP to determine if a user‘s authentication is valid.
User access rights and feature availability can be set on an individual basis using Cinegy Enterprise Manager. Individual web users can be granted full rights, read-only rights or no rights, for each folder or media subset.
Easy to Understand and Use
Cinegy Workspace users can navigate quickly and easily through all of the material in their Cinegy Archive. In the Cinegy Workspace explorer view, the content of the Cinegy Archive database is represented as a tree of folders containing objects such as ClipBins, Rolls and Sequences. The familiar explorer interface makes it easy to create and manage items.
The bin interface includes a storyboard view and a table view. All windows can be positioned and sized according to the user needs within Cinegy Workspace. This allows users to see all of their material at a glance, and easily sort items and edit metadata.
A clip can be opened and played by a simple double-click. The player window offers all the features necessary to view and rough edit material. Changes made to the database content are immediately saved to the Cinegy Archive server. A sophisticated search engine simplifies media browsing and material preparation. It takes just a few seconds to locate required Cinegy Workspace windows that can be positioned and sized to suit media assets.
