Zenium Plugins Release Notes
Imagine Communications Zenium Plugins Updates
NOTE: Kayak/Xenio has been renamed Zenium
Blueprint File Extension in the Designer (as of December 2014):
The Zenium Designer will now save blueprints with a .zenium file extension. Previously saved blueprints
which used the .kayak or .xenio file extension can still be opened in the Designer using the Designer’s
File > Open menu. However, the files with the older .kayak or .xenio file extension will not be shown in the
Zenium Designer “User Files” panel.
Updating Zenium Plugins Using the Repo
Open the Zenium Repo Browser. (From the SelenioFlex File Manager Console select Server > Zenium
Repo Browser from the main menu.) If you imported plugins during the installation you will have at least
one populated partition. You can update existing partitions or create new ones.
Option 1: Add Plugin Updates to an existing partition.
This will add the new versions to the partition without deleting the older versions.
To add new plugins to an existing partition from a remote repository:
 Disable the Read Only option in the Repo Browser and click the Synchronize button
 Enter the URL of the remote repository. For the Zenium Public Repository enter https://drcsupport.digital-rapids.com:42100.
 Select the remote repo partition. Remote plugins that are newer than local plugins will be shown.
Select the plugins you want to sync and click the "Synchronize Selected" button (lower right).
To add new plugins to an existing partition from a Zip file:
 Download the Plugins zip bundle
 Select Plugin > Add Plugins (Zip bundle) and select the zip file
Option 2: Create a new partition for updated Plugins
If you may want to run some Zenium Blueprints using the older version of the plugins, while being able to
run other Zenium Blueprints using the newer versions of the plugins, then you should create a new
partition. When you have more than one partition, when you launch Zenium Designer you will be asked to
select the plugin partition to use. When you create a group in SelenioFlex File Manager, you will be asked
to select the plugin partition that will be used by Transcode Engines assigned to that group.
To create a new partition you must disable the Read Only check box found to the right of the Repository
URL line. Select Partition > Add Partition, and enter a partition name.
Use the partition dropdown to select your new partition. Add the new plugins to the partition by either
sync'ing from a remote repository or from a downloaded plugin Zip file (as detailed above).
Partition for Mac Transcode Engines:
If you will be using Mac Transcode Engines (for ProRes encoding) then you will need to create a separate
partition that can be used by your Mac resources. Only a few plugins are required for ProRes encoding
on Mac Transcode Engines, so this partition will be relatively small.
Note: You must use the 2013-12 plugin release for Mac Transcode Engines.

Added a new component: AS11 XML Sidecar Generator (used by DPP
workflows); Added a new OP: AS11
Media File Input: Bug fix for trimming support when black border
detection is enabled; When DirectShow decoding is enabled an option
to save a Log File is shown.
Bug fixes for handling DirectShow decoding in transcode jobs
Support for the change in the Media File Input component for
DirectShow Log File option.
Fixed a stability issue that would cause a crash when doing long
duration encoding; added support when running on 64-bit OS.
Fixed a bug that was preventing timecode from being extracted from a
ProRes file; Fixed an issue that was preventing the Video Speed Up
Slow Down component from being used with QuickTime source files;
fixed a bug that would prevent a ProRes file from decoding if it was
preceded by the decode of another type of mov file.
Fixed an issue where VITC was not preserved for 480i29.97
Frame size in client manifest is now correctly calculated based on
original size an display aspect ratio and rounded so that it is compliant
with mod-16 (mainly a concern for hardware decoding, e.g., STB or
gaming console).
Bug fix: Output datatype framerate is now populated correctly
Bug fix: Output datatype framerate is now populated correctly
Bug fix: when aspect ratio is set to 16:9 the display_aspect_ratio value
will now correctly be set to 16/9.
When the Frame layout value is missing and scaling is enabled, the
component now will show a warning (instead of ignoring the scaling);
Added support for conversion from 4:2:0 8-bit directly to 4:2:2 16-bit
Added support for decoding 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 16-bit
