Chyron BVE 2012 Show Preview
BlueNet™ Graphics Creation and Playout
This year at BVE 2012, Chyron will demonstrate BlueNet™, a comprehensive solution that fully addresses broadcasters' requirements for streamlined end-to-end graphics workflows. BlueNet leverages Chyron's acclaimed suite of graphics tools for ordering and graphics asset management, collaborative graphics creation, and real-time playout. Integration with Axis World Graphics, Chyron's cutting-edge cloud-based services offering, extends the power of BlueNet workflows to speed even the most sophisticated graphics to air.
BlueNet minimizes the cycle time from creation to air, ensuring very fast news and sports workflows. Order management tools allow producer-driven content to move smoothly into a rundown, and management tools and easily accessible templates enable instant and efficient collaboration in preparing graphics.
Channel Box² Branding and Promo System
Chyron also will showcase its newly enhanced Channel Box². Channel Box² is a next-generation channel branding system that features 2D/3D design with a complete data acquisition toolset for all branding applications. Built on Chyron's Lyric® technology, Channel Box² allows users to access any data — RSS feeds, traffic, financial, weather, elections, tickers, promos, snipes, and more — and publish it on-air anywhere, anytime.
New Channel Box² software (v. 4.5) introduces a playlist sequencer that allows single traffic log events to play out multiple Channel Box² scenes. By automating these processes and reducing the operator workload, Channel Box² streamlines the workflow and saves the broadcaster valuable time in creating quality broadcast graphics.
Axis World Graphics
Axis World Graphics is the world's only cloud-based graphics creation system designed specifically for broadcasters. Axis World Graphics simplifies, streamlines, and facilitates the graphics creation process, enabling artists, reporters, production assistants, and news producers to create broadcast-quality graphics using their own graphics package. Combining award-winning technology and functionality, proven integration, and point-and-click customization, Axis World Graphics allows users to create templates in Chyron's award-winning Lyric® PRO 8 software, further streamlining integration within the broadcaster's existing workflow or within Chyron's BlueNet™ workflow.
Several new features have recently been introduced to the system, including fully integrated electronic order management, asset management, and integrations with Apple® Final Cut Pro® and Adobe® Premiere® Pro video editing, all of which are designed for ease of use and maximum workflow efficiency. Axis World Graphics empowers broadcast production staff to access prebuilt templates that they can leverage for quick creation of 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.
HyperX3.1 On-Air Graphics System
Also on display at BVE 2012 will be HyperX3.1. This new release of Chyron's flagship on-air graphics system supports even faster real-time rendering, in turn enabling broadcasters to take even more 3D graphics and animations to air quickly. Like its predecessor, HyperX3.1 is ideal for demanding environments like live sports, news stations, and outside broadcast productions. This extremely fast, powerful, and easy-to-use platform features seamless creation-to-playout capability and real-time 2D/3D animation, and the system is 3D stereoscopic-ready.
The turnkey HyperX3.1 is scalable to two independent channels and incorporates optional DVEs, clips, and Chyron's award-winning Lyric® PRO 8 advanced creation and playout software.
