In my opinion, Kyno is one of the best pieces of filmmaking software on the market. There is nothing else quite like it.
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 constantly use Kyno to preview footage and make notes to pass on to my editor — it’s truly a huge aid to my workflow
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.
