Chyron BVE 2013 Product Preview
ChyronIP Graphics Streaming Over IP
This year at BVE 2013, Chyron will demonstrate ChyronIP, a real-time HD/SD 2D and 3D character and graphics generator specifically designed for the NewTek TriCaster™, an all-in-one, integrated live production system that offers the power of a live network studio. ChyronIP is a compact, lightweight system that provides producers with up to two HD or SD full-motion channels of Chyron graphics that stream directly into the TriCaster over a network connection.
Ideal for sports, news, entertainment, and any other live production, ChyronIP allows TriCaster users to employ the same high-impact graphics typically seen in premier sports and entertainment broadcasts. Because graphics data is delivered via a network connection, broadcasters can take advantage of ChyronIP for TriCaster without tying up any of the needed camera inputs that are critical to live production. ChyronIP allows users to leverage Chyron’s award-winning Lyric® PRO graphics application to create live, full-motion Chyron broadcast graphics, 3D animations, and transitions.
Channel Box² Branding and Promo System
Chyron also will showcase its newly enhanced Channel Box². Channel Box² is a 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, social media, and more — and publish it on-air anywhere, anytime.
New Channel Box² software (v.4.7) includes a powerful, advanced point-and-click data tool that allows users to acquire data from many sources quickly and easily. Also included in this software release is the Channel Box² sports data feed interface, which allows for the easy display of live TV sports data feeds from Daktronics, Whiteway, OES, and Fairplay scoring systems.
ENGAGE Second-Screen and Social TV Gateway
Also on display at BVE 2013 is ENGAGE, Chyron’s second-screen and social TV gateway. ENGAGE gives broadcasters the ability to add viewer interaction — such as votes, polls, and tweet battles — easily into their live news and sports programming, along with rich call-to-action graphics and infographics. It integrates with popular second-screen and social data partners, eliminating the need for custom integration while maintaining routine production workflows. ENGAGE provides producers with easy-to-use tools that allow for the instant creation of interactions that can dynamically boost audience engagement.
SHOUT™ Social Media Editor
SHOUT™, a stand-alone software application that enables broadcasters to bring social media commentary into their live broadcasts quickly and easily, will be demonstrated at BVE 2013. SHOUT gives one or more users the ability to monitor, select, adjust, and route social media conversations to broadcast graphics systems either for on-air playback or for storage as data files for later use. Multiple instances of SHOUT running across a facility can be used simultaneously by different staff members to view content and moderate the same playback list. Users can add, remove, and authenticate multiple social media accounts from sources like Twitter™, Facebook, RSS, and Mass Relevance.
