“The Chyron portfolio features robust tools for high-end broadcast graphics creation, and our booth at BVE will showcase the latest refinements to our industry-leading products and provide many attendees with their first look at our exciting new AXIS solution. We look forward to demonstrating for broadcasters — those in the U.K. and from across Europe — an array of powerful systems that range from complete solutions in a box to forward-looking cloud-based services,” said Paul Glasgow, vice president of sales, EMEA, at Chyron.
HyperX3 On-Air Graphics System
Also at BVE 2011 will be Chyron’s flagship on-air graphics system, HyperX3. Ideal for live sports channels, news stations, and outside broadcast productions, this extremely fast, powerful, and easy-to-use platform features seamless creation-to-playout capability, real-time 2D/3D animation, built-in stereoscopic-ready 3D, and a host of hardware and software features. The turnkey HyperX3 is scalable to two independent channels and incorporates optional DVEs, clips, and the company’s award-winning Lyric PRO 8 advanced creation and playout package, which includes a rich motion graphics feature set and a completely new 3D text rendering engine.
The HyperX3 makes a very impressive statement for both quality and performance. The new Lyric PRO 8 makes even greater use of the impressive performance gains of the HyperX3 platform. The Lyric PRO software platform continues to provide precise control over every transition and effect with a broad array of adjustments already familiar to users of 3D creation tools.
Lyric PRO 8 Graphics Creation Software
Chyron’s Lyric PRO 8 graphics creation software features a powerful continuous graphics rendering engine to enable delivery of superior-quality real-time 3D animations. This latest release of Chyron’s innovative Lyric PRO software serves up native support for stereoscopic 3D, scriptless transitions, and Touch GraphX touch-screen graphics that give anchors and reporters convenient playout control.
Lyric PRO 8’s hierarchical grouping and keyframe timeline attributes provide designers with a familiar and interactive toolset, and real-time multi-scene compositing and interactive messages are within reach without requiring complex scripting. The software integrates directly with industry-standard applications such as Adobe® Creative Suite® and Autodesk® 3D solutions. Lyric PRO 8 is engineered with high-performance features that provide ease of use under all conditions, and by everyone on the production staff, from artists and operators to directors and engineering personnel.
Channel Box² Branding and Promo System
Chyron’s Channel Box² will also be highlighted at BVE 2011. Channel Box² is a channel branding and automated promo system that features 2D/3D design and playout for branding applications, including tickers, crawls, snipes, “bag & tag,” promos, and end credits. The system’s real-time video, graphics effects, clips, and audio can be integrated with existing automation systems, or the system can be used as a stand-alone branding device. Channel Box² is designed to help broadcasters and playout facilities achieve brilliant station promotions, weather and news tickers, squeeze backs, and other effects quickly, easily, inexpensively, and without jeopardizing quality.
AXIS Graphics Online Content Creation
Chyron will highlight its AXIS graphics platform, a unique cloud-based service that has become the industry leader in on-demand graphics. The world’s only cloud-computing graphics creator designed specifically for the broadcaster, AXIS simplifies, streamlines, and facilitates the graphics creation workload across many users in a broadcast operation — from reporters to production assistants to news producers. Integrating with the broadcaster’s existing or Chyron-based workflow, AXIS combines award-winning technology and functionality, proven integration, and point-and-click customization.
AXIS services include high-resolution maps, 3D charts, financial quotes, and a virtually unlimited set of tools for topical news graphics creation. Each service is designed for ease of use and maximum workflow efficiency.
AXIS provides broadcast production staff with pre-built templates that they can leverage to quickly create graphics for multiple outlets, including websites, mobile devices, and print publications. Graphics creation that once took hours now takes minutes, saving time and money, and enabling artists to concentrate on high-end design. The result is a fast return on investment, followed by substantial savings in operations. AXIS services are set to launch in Europe and the Middle East during 2011.
