Thomas Schmithausen & Kyno: a documentarian’s best friend

What users say about Kyno

I first tried Kyno on an HBO shoot in Manila and its user interface, and attention to displaying key info like timecode and metadata, have been massive timesavers in creating detailed notes about my rushes that I pass down to my editors. It's drill-down function has been a godsend for those of us using cameras with obscure file directories. Kyno also makes transcoding and batch renaming clips a breeze, even on my six-year-old MacPro.
Orlando de Guzman, Producer
Kyno is proving to be a simple yet powerful universal media player for all the different video formats that arrive at our news bureaus. One of the unexpected benefits is that the editorial staff now have a single tool that allows them to carry out logging and transcription tasks within that same application.
