Kyno is easy to use, feature rich and makes logging, rating and transcoding your vision a more enjoyable task. It's the first program of its type that works with just about any camera, codec or format.
Kyno is a much-needed one-stop shop for viewing and logging daily rushes. Being able to check the content on my hard drives from multiple camera formats on the one program is a huge time saver! With Kyno, you don't have to have your desktop full of players for all of your cameras, nor do you need an expensive NLE system. Kyno is ultra-efficient and it works with every codec I've thrown it's way. You really can't ask for more than that.
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.
Kyno has become an indispensable part of my file management toolkit. From the set to the edit suite we lean on Kyno to help with tasks that previously required multiple programs. If that wasn’t enough, the first-rate support we've received has been a breath of fresh air.
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.
