Lyric® PRO 8.6 Graphics Creation Software
ChyronHego’s acclaimed Lyric PRO 8.6 graphics creation software enables the easy creation of advanced graphics and is used by major broadcasters worldwide. With design features and support for Windows® 7 64-bit playout, native support for stereoscopic 3D, scriptless transitions, and touch-screen-enabled graphics, Lyric PRO 8.6 accelerates graphic workflows that result in the shortest cycle time to air.
Lyric PRO software powers ChyronHego’s line of real-time graphics creation and playout systems and BlueNet™-enabled graphics servers. ChyronHego will showcase Lyric PRO 8.6 on its state-of-the-art Mosaic graphics playout system and CAMIO graphics asset management server.
MediaMaker is a turnkey solution that seamlessly integrates ChyronHego graphics with file-based workflows. As part of the CAMIO newsroom workflow product line, MediaMaker uses Lyric® file-based rendering to create graphics for use in editing applications such as Apple® Final Cut Pro® and Adobe® Premiere® Pro.
By equipping the editing suite with the ChyronHego BlueNet™ workflow — including ChyronHego’s LUCI template fulfillment and Axis World Graphics content creation and order management system — MediaMaker gives video editors and graphic designers access to the same graphics and animations that are being used live on the air.
