Cinedeck develops innovative solutions that include video recorders, cineXtools (their standalone insert-edit software) and API toolsets for Insert Edit and AMA Plugins. At the core of all Cinedeck products is File-based Insert-Edit, a radical technology allowing considerable cost-savings and workflow efficiencies through essence level data overwrite of files.


Making edits to your deliverables in your regular video editing software is a time-consuming process. CineXtools can help you do that in minutes rather than hours. It is a stand-alone media-file and deliverables management application. CineXtools enables editors to make changes to shows not in hours or days, but in minutes. Directly edit the flat files with no exporting or QCing needed.

CineXtools accurately replaces video, audio, and close caption data in flat files. It does it in way that is almost identical to inserting into a video tape. CineXtools uses timecode to define in and out points for the source and master. Then it replaces content by overwriting the original data.


Insert-edit video, audio and closed captions directly from Avid Media Composer and Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC. Instead of exporting the fixes to use with a separate application, as done with CineXtools, you can now use your favourite NLE’s export function to insert-edit the fixes directly to an already-exported file.

Like cineXtools, insert-edits using cineX-Plugins can be performed on files exported from anywhere, creating unprecedented interoperability between NLEs, while using compressed codecs like ProRes or DNx. If VFX is done on one NLE, while online and colour are done on a differing NLE, using insert-edit to replace a VFX sequence, fix an audio pop on a specific audio track or replace a slate for a spelling issue can all be done without re-exporting. The final technical edit before delivery can accommodate all these changes with a simple insert-edit instead of a render down and re-export.
